Fabulous & rare antique early to mid 1800s French hand carved wood 21.75â altar style crucifix or cross, ornate carved base with expired Christ and mourning Mary sculptures! Carved in a lighter wood, possibly Linden as was used in Black Forest works so it may be of German or even Italian origins but it came to us directly from France so we have to mention that. The cross itself in plain, uncarved wood but the base and figures are wonderful! Our pictures of this one really donât do it justice which is why I havenât listed it to date but I decided that getting it listed would prompt me to take and add better images so watch for those updates within the next week. A remarkable antique devotional and/or decorative piece. We love these old religious works of art grouped and displayed and are sure you will, too! Be sure to browse some while youâre with us, we always have a fine collection of antique religious pieces from crosses to micro mosaic works, mourning jewelry & hair art.
Very good to excellent condition, age & materials condidered. The rear leg of the tripod base has been re-glued, as have the ball feet. The left upper carved portion of the base also has a glued split or break but itâs nearly invisible. Possibly a tiny nip or two but I see no chips, cracks or other damage. See pictures for all measurements.
