This vintage or antique wallhanging skull crossed bones crucifix comes from my grandparents' (german) estate and I would estimate it to date around 1930 or '40, if not older. The cross is verneered wood. Its nailed on attachments are silvery metal. The 3.5 in long finely detailed body of Jesus and the starlike thorn crown halo are nonmagnetic. The INRI sign and skull with crossed bones are magnetic. The cross (just the beams) is 10 1/4 in high, 5 1/4 in wide and 3/8 in deep. The cross beams are 1 1/4 in wide. The cross' back top has a nailed on metal (tin?) hanger for wall mounting.

Some of the cross' coating is chipped off as shown. The hanger is rusty. The body of Jesus has some blackened areas. Otherwise the venerable item is in beautiful condition.

I ship next day!
