Rare antique french altar crucifix made of wood, bisque, ormolu, mirrors and metal, a religious church ornament with agnus dei, lamb of god, sacred heart, anchor, bird and a bisque corpus christi etc etc. This is a highly detailed and big standing cross standing on a black wooden stand with 4 small feet. The base of the crucifix itself is made of gilded wood with silver painted details. On the front of the base you can see a sacred heart, an anchor, a crucifix etc. At the base of the cross there is the lamb of god with a cross, agnus dei, with great details.
The crucifix is made of wood with a silver tone metal, surrounded by openworked details in ormolu. The real bisque jesus christ is highly detailed as well, there is a silvertone metal halo behind jesus' head and on top there is a bisque banner with the letters inri. All surrounded by a gold tone ormolu wreath with leaves and a pretty bird on top holding a small wreath. There are 2 beveled mirrors fixed to the big ormolu wreath.
Look at all the details and imagine the hours and hours of work on this fabulous religious piece of art. I have never seen such a detailed piece before. All these ornate details make this a very rare and original religious antique cross. Used as a church decor on the altar. Sizes: 18.4 inches high (52cm) in total and 12 inches wide for the black base (30cm) and 7.2 inches deep for the black base(18cm).Much prettier in reality than on the pictures, it is an amazing piece. In a very good vintage condition, as shown on the pictures, you can use the zoom feature to see all the fine details: some small chips and some repaired paint spots to the gilded base, some wear to the patina of the black wooden base, nothing serious, this does not detract from the beauty of this gorgeous piece of religious art. I have more stunning crucifixes for sale, please take a look.
