Seller: Top-Rated Seller godblessyou21 (1,015) 100%, Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 202804154895 Gorgeous authentic antique large (over 2" tall with solid bale) Eastern Catholic or Orthodox Crucifix pendant featuring ornate design with a Medieval-style depiction of the crucified Savior. The Crucifix appears to be made from bronze or a similar copper alloy, and is covered with patches of partially cleaned brown patina. Exact age is unknown, similar objects of Imperial Russian origin have been described in the available literature and dated c. 18th-19th century (please see the last picture for a reference). The Crucifix has some rough poorly polished edges. Its necklace bale bears marks from hand-polishing file tool. The item shows signs of wear typical for its old age, such as small deformations, reduced quality of images and inscriptions, superficial dents and scratches. The size of the pendant is shown on the photographs for the listing. The style of the crucifix uniquely combines a Latin-style cross with a simplified, Medieval-style depiction of Christ according to the Byzantine tradition of iconic images: the Savior is depicted with large halo around His head and long beard, and with His feet nailed to the cross separately. The space just above Christ's head bears the "INRI" nameplate inscribed in Cyrillic letters. Please examine all photographs carefully and do your own research if necessary. Please note that photographs are an important part of the item's description. The measuring meter, decorative stone, and US quarter coin are not for sale, and are photographed with the item in order to provide a size reference or artistic background. Please ask all questions before making a purchase. There are no guarantees with the listing because most items are original vintage or antique objects that are quite old.
