No. O-164 - Mexican Folk Art - $43.88
Vintage Nicho

A rare find, a vintage religious folk art altar portraying Our Lady of Juquila, aka Nuestra Senora de Juquila, from Oaxaca, Mexico. Inside the tin altar is an old print, framed and surrounded by leaded glass that has foil paper behind it for shimmer and color. Tin wings flare out from the sides, and foil flowers are inside the shadow-box altar. There is oxidation to this charming piece of folk art, as it probably hung for many years in a place of honor.

The altar measures 5 1/2" tall x 6" across the wings. It's in excellent condition, and is missing a hanging ring or some way to hang it. Unknown exact age and origin, I am estimating the 1940's or earlier.

The item will ship at 2 pounds for $8.95 postage for international parcel post. Postage includes extra weight for packing, any excess postage charged will be refunded to buyer's Paypal account.
