This lovely 19th century Russian Icon showing Saint Procopius of Ustyug is simply stunning. It is an amazing combination of etching, gilt work and handpainting. The painting is conducted in gently smooth lines and the etching makes it appear almost sculptural. Further more the gilt work is conducted maginficently.
Measurements: circa 12 x 10 x 1 inches.
Condition: It has a nice age patina. It is in fair condition. Some wear to the polychrome paint, a crack in the upper left corner and some damage through antique wormholes (which have been treated and sealed just to make sure all worms are dead and the icon is structually stable)
