Offering for sale a beautiful old marriage blessing icon. This is Italian Florentine, with gold gilt over gesso on wood in hinged book design. On the left is transfer or decoupage style art of the Nativity with an overglaze making it appear to be a painting. On the right the Marriage Blessing prayer, surrounded by illuminated style decorations. The outside of this piece is gold with a gentle pale pink and touches of turquoise blue. It measures 6" tall and 4 & 1/4" wide when closed, 8 & 1/2" wide when opened fully. The design allows for it to stand on its own. It is in very good condition with no significant damage, minor wear only.
