Offering for sale a wonderful old table or altar crucifix. This is of fine carved wood, Black Forest style, possibly is German origin, but we think French, definitely European. The cross flows up from a lily base, various religious symbols carved to the sides including a ladder, Easter drape over the cross. The corpus of Jesus is silver metal of unknown metal content, nice detail. The crucifix is 12 & 1/4" tall and 4 & 3/4" wide; the corpus is 3 & 1/4" tall. There is an empty nail below the corpus, possibly a skull & crossbones was attached there at one time. This is a very nice old piece, circa 1880's or earlier.
