Antique Russian Icon Of Jesus The Pantocrator Labelled Moscow 1896 Signed Back:
an exquisite old antique possibly Russian ''mockba'' /MOSCOW 1896? ICON, an Orthodox icon with a Greek signature on the back.
the metal has aged but looks stunning if you like oldy worldy stuff,with a few unfortunate bits of paint missing over the Bible and some on His face that reveal a very shiny silver metal underneath,which was obviously part of the effect to make the colours of the robe,and face detail glow with a richer 3d embossed metal with colour tone depending on the lighting you view it in.
a very rare icon measuring 14.5cm x 18cm x 1cm in thickness, and has quite a bit of the gold / gilt missing with age.please feel free toask questions and/or give me any information/translation of the label at the base and sides of this old icon, and the old greek signature at the back
