Vintage Chalkware Figurine Archangel Michael Killing Satan


Brand Etsy

This is a vintage chalkware plaster figure of the Archangel Michael killing Satan. This particular scene is described in the Bible in the Book of Revelation: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
The piece was made in Italy and imported by Salah. Although the label looks more modern, I believe that the piece dates to 1930s, maybe 1940s - possibly was imported as an old piece.
It measures 12 1/4 in height. As typical with older chalk ware there is a chip to Satans wing (see close-up photo) and some paint chips to Michaels nose, hair and arm as well as Satans nose. My understanding is that it is fairly easy to restore chalk ware, but I assume that you would have to have some skill in this regard,
Beautiful colours on this chalk ware figurine - with a bit of restoration or touch-up, this will make a wonderful display piece!
