The composition of this plaquette, portraying the Virgin and Child crowned by angels, is taken from a composition by Antonio Rossellino. The stepped edge suggests that it was meant to be framed. Another variant is in the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Florence. This coarse aftercast is from the nineteenth century.
