A VERY IMPRESSIVE OLD HAND CARVED ANIMAL CRUCIFIX SET WITHIN A WOODEN FRAME


Hi,i have for sale a lovely Crucifix that is carved in animal and set within a wooden frame.I am not sure the age of this piece but it is not modern.The carving is of Jesus and the plaque on the top of the cross.This has good detail and the fingers and other extremeties seem intact.This is made up of three sections with the two out stretched arms being fixed with the nails and animal glue.I have done a test on the back with a thin hot needle and it did not melt on contact no matter how red i heated the needle.You can see feint long grain lines on the legs too.The figure measures approx 5 1/2 inches high x 4 inches wide.The frame is made of wood and painted gold with a red felt backing to display the cross.The frame measures 12 3/4 inches high x 8 1/4 inches wide.The condition is very good and there are few small spots of brown here and there.Also the arms are fixed firm in position via the nails but the glue on the arms has deteriorated now.They are firm and stay in position no problems.The postage will be £7 to send UK,£14 for Europe and £22 for the rest of the world.Many thanks for looking(;o)
