Description: Beautiful antique Russian icon made of cast bronze around 1880s-1890s. It was originally a three-fold icon with the central part depicting the Holy Virgin with Child and side parts depicting various scenes from the life of Holy Virgin..
These icons are believed to be travelling icons to warship during a trip. This particular type with folding parts were called "skladen" from the Russian word for fold. The icon is made of solid bronze by wax-casting method that was very popular for small religious pieces in late 1800s. This method made possible to produce the smallest details.
The left part is lost but the remaining two are in good condition with some bronze wear due to the handling and cleaning for over 100 years.
Condition: see description
Size: 4" by 4"
