Madonna and Child in a bell jar - Earthenware - Late 13th century

Description
Madonna and Child in a bell jar - Earthenware - Late 13th century
Italy

19th-century Madonna in a glass dome.
Some small restorations needed
The glass was replaced with a smaller one, as you can see
from the photos, but it is original from that period and should be replaced with
one with a larger diameter.
Everything is completely original, I believe the statue
is made of terracotta, but I will let the more expert comment and judge!
Overall measurements, including the dome: 46 cm.
The statue alone measures 35 cm. The base has a diameter of 22 cm.
On site pickup in the Varese area is preferred
given the fragility of the item.
