Antique Nineteenth Century Large French Gilded Bronze Religious "Lutrin" (Lectern)
The gilded bronze body is sturdy and solid. The upper body features a design of four panels, each of which have a cut-work design of flowers, scrolls and leaves. At the center is a large rosette with the initials "JHS". There are raised flowers and a central cross rising from the "H" surrounding the initials. There are traces of enamel paint on the small flowers of this design. The legs repeat this open work design of flowers, scrolls and leaves. The shelf for holding a book has a decoratively shaped edge. It measures 2" deep and 10 3/4" wide.
The lutrin is in good antique condition. It measures: 19" tall, 10 3/4" wide and 9 1/2" deep when folded out to standing. It is solid and very useable, it would hold a large or heavy book easily.
It is a beautiful example. It would be a stunning support for an antique Bible or is equally as lovely standing alone as a decorative accent.
