Russian Icon - Madonna & Child
8-1/2 in x 10-1/2 in on 1 inch thick wood.
Don't know much about this, I will try to describe the Russian characters that are painted on it.
Top left MP or MF. Top Right OY & under that INC KPC
Left of Mary's head YEHCTOXOBCKIM & under that NPC BUY (U almost looks like a 4)
Next to Jesus' head a W on left and H on right.
This has been in my family since before I was born. Don'tremember when the paint began to crack.
There is only 1 tack at the top, holding the metal cover on. This is the first time the cover has ever been taken off. Back is covered with deep red velvet. (velvet is old and powdery)
I apologize for the photo quality, just a cell phone. Happy to answer any questions.
I know this came from a church in the late 1950's. When they built a new modern facility, they literally threw things away & this is one.
This may be a crazy high price, but I don't know what I have here. The prices for these things go high to low.
Time to pass it on for many reasons, life has taken a turn.Thanks for looking!
