Vintage 1950s The Kitchen Madonna

Wall Plaque or Statue

Research tells me this is made in Japan by SANMYRO. The original sticker piece that is left is not readable.

If there is no bid in this item in the first 24 hours we reserve the right to end the auction.

This plaque is approx 7 1/4" tall by 4 1/4" wide.
  This piece is trimmed in gold. There is some light wear (mostly the cross and stars) to the gold from years of cleaning as you can see in the pictures. The words "The Kitchen Madonna" are across the bottom. There is a figural Mary holding a loaf of bread with a young Jesus at her side. This piece is in great shape with no chips, no cracks. There is crazing starting, but I only see it in the front where the "floor" and "wall" meet. It could also have stress cracks in this same area, but I am not sure as I cannot see the back of this area. See last picture. Despite this, it is a great vintage piece!
There is a hole in the back for hanging, or this can stand on a counter top.
Part of the original sticker is on the bottom, but cannot be read. My research tells me this is made in Japan by SANMYRO.
