...... This sale is for one of the more unusual items we have listed in a while. I will guarantee that it is from at least the 17th century, but it is most likely much earlier. Constructed from hand hammered copper with hammered lead corners and binding, this ancient Bible Cover is unique. Each time I look at it, I find something new hidden in the hand hammered design. Measuring 17cm wide by 21.5cm long by 4cm thick (6 ¼ x 8 ¼ by 1 ¾ inches), this ancient Bible Cover is most likely Greek Orthodox. Starting with the lead binding, you can see the word, “Basil” engraved across the top. Underneath that there are several religious symbols, including the fish and the Greek Orthodox Cross. This cross is also hidden in several other places on the Bible Cover. If you look closely, you will see the full-figured engraving of St. Basil holding a tall, thin cross. There is evidence at the bottom of this lead binding that it was once gold gilded. In the middle of the front cover is another hammered relief of St. Basil and on the back cover is a crucifix. At the bottom of the crucifix is the number “379,” which a short search on the net will tell you is the year St. Basil died. As you look at the photographs of this ancient Bible Cover, you will see the striking color different of the green verdigris and the old copper patina. The corners and the hinges are made from lead and held in place with hand hammered tacks. On the inside of the wood panels, you can see a small piece of the green silk lining that once covered the entire inside.
......We guarantee 100% that the high buyer will be more than satisfied with the quality, condition, age, and authenticity, or we will return all of their money.
