I am looking at a Flower Madonna with Child that has blue W

Customer Question

I am looking at a Flower Madonna with Child that has blue W Germany stamp but has the original paper label on the front. Can you give an estimate on the age or time period as I have not seen a paper label on any others.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: It does have the closed halo. Another seller had posted that the closed halo started around 1956 when they changed the mold. The open halo was pre 1956. However this particular one I'm asking about with a paper label does have appropriate amount of crazing.
