Religious Late 19th Century Christian Icon Encased in a Plaster and Wooden Case. The item for sale is a one of and very unique decorative and artistic original mid to late 19. Century Church glass enclosed Jesus depiction of the crucifixion. I have never seen another item like it, it is made from wood, plaster and glass. The face of Jesus is made from plaster, this lays on a gold leaf painted backing on plaster. The Face is protected by an original glass sheet. The Christ is housed in a wooden box and framed with a plaster and wooden frame. This item would have huge in a very wealthy Christian Church at some point. The item is structurally sound. However the glass is loose (this doesnt affect the head or structure). The plaster on the front of the frame is missing and fragile due to its age. There is a large crack (as shown) in the front but once again this does not affect the stability or structure in anyway. I could have had this item repaired however dont want to tamper with an item so rare and looks so bespoke. This item is made and painted by hand, even the Jesus head is hand painted with perfection. His eyes shut you can see into them when you view from below only (pictures provided to view) this is a very rare item, Ive never seen one in all my years as a dealer. I would strongly suggest cash on collection or courier in the UK only if you are considering purchasing due to how fragile it is. One thing I can assure you is that you wont find another one like it.
