Beautifully hand carved crucifix with symbolic representations of Christ and a large and shimmering mother of pearl half shell. Napoleon III era, c. 1850-70s, for this one, and it's survived without a single chip or crack, no damage at all. Large and elegantly conceived and carved by hand. A full 13" tallest, impressive!
Excellent condition for age and type, no flaws to note at all on this old one. Thick plaque of wood, skillfully carved with symbols and text. 19th century artistry.
