This is a very beautiful devotional object from the end of the 19th Century. The cross is made of finely chiseled regule with a color bronze patina. Jesus and the shell shape stoup are made of white metal. The panel support is in blackened wood, rosewood veneered,the edges are black painted. Except a darker mark and a small defect of the wood veneer ,and some limestone traces in the shell’s interior,please see photos, this superb stoup is in very good antique condition. You can hang it thanks a little ring. It’s 14,57 inches high ( 37cm ) and 9,76 at the widest ( 24,8cm ) and very heavy: 2,49 Ib ( 1,130 Kg ). A nice collector’s item.
