This is a Russian Icon of Christ with a Copper Riza or hammered copper frame, over the face of Christ. The Riza opens to the face and hands of Christ. The Painting in over wood with beautiful cragnelure(cracks and crazing produced when the lacquer ages and cracks), the painting is usually over cloth, the back of the painting is an aged turquoise cloth covering with a circle paper label with Russian on the periphery, faded and illegible. I have not disassembled the Riza for fear of damaging the painting, there is a crack of the copper facing just below the face of Christ, My jeweler told me that it could not be repaired without removing the Riza. The size is consistent with most of the Russian Icons like this one, 10 3/4 inches by 9 inches, weight 1 lb 6.7 ounces.
