B1429 - Superb Antique French Architectural Icon, Gilded Jesus On Cross With Cherubs
This is a superb antique French icon dating from the 1800's. It is made from brass and is very decorative and architectural. It would be perfect for a special niche.
The frame of the icon is cast in the form of a church. There is a central spire with a cross and to either side of this is a steeple. There is a beautiful scroll and shell to the base. The attention to detail is astonishing - see the gladiators and the dove of peace.
To the centre of the frame is a gilded crucifix with the body of Christ. Sitting at his feet are two beautiful cherubs.
When we turn the piece over we see that there is a fitting to the base and that it was once probably attached to something, possibly a staff. There is a loop for hanging on a wall.
The icon measures :- 20.5 cm (8 inches) high x 7.75 cm (3 inches) wide.
This is a fabulous religious piece to display and use and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
