Vintage Wood Crucifix Art Deco Style
This is a recent find from a local Estate Sale. A wooden crucifix that is or at least looks Art Deco Style. The back of the cross has a $1.49 price written in pencil and that would be an appropriate price for the Art Deco era.
The wooden cross measures 13 7/8 inches long and 7 1/4 inches wide. The depth is 3/8 inches. There is a metal hanging attachment on the back.
All four corners of the cross have metal art deco style attachments. Below the top one is a metal INRI scroll. The corpus figure is some kind of cast metal. It is not nailed at the feel, but is at the hands. The nail from the right hand does poke through the back of the cross.
The front of the cross has some fading in a couple of spots of the wood finish. Above the right hand of the body close to the art deco style attachment there is some scratching that looks like an upside down R to me....could be just scratches.
A lovely vintage crucifix to hang on the wall.
