Puccinelli Framed EngravingBoxwoodLane.com
Framed engraving marked A. Puccinelli - dated 1855. Rare piece showing the miraculous image of the Holy Mary of the oak, or S. Maria Della Quercia. It depicts an interesting story of a painting on tile from 1417 of the Madonna and child. The painting was commissioned by a citizen to the town of Viterbo in central Italy near Rome. When the tile was completed it was affixed by the owner to an oak tree in the town. In 1467 during one of the repeating generational outbreaks of the plague the image became an object of veneration to which many miraculous cures were associated. This engraving shows the painting in the center image, surrounded by smaller images of the various miracles and benefits attributed to the painting. It's in an antique walnut shadowbox frame.
- The exposed image size is about 9" x 7".
- The overall frame size is about 14.5" x 12.5".
- Part of our Estate Collection and in very good vintage condition. The frame is antique and shows some signs of age, including some loss of the gold gilt and some minor marks on the wood. The engraving shows minor yellowing, especially on the outer edges, next to the matting. Note that the engraving plate marks are under the matting.
