Antique Ivory Sculpture, Christ Crucifix Figure, Signed J. Beck
One of the very finest ivory carvings of Christ crucified I have found. This sculpture is large, 9.5" long, 6.75" wide and 1.5" high. It is in pristine condition; it is signed and the quality of the carving utterly magnificent! A truly rare, very desirable sculpture, likely dating from the mid-1800's, European. The pictures tell it all for this piece. The back side of the carving has yellowed with age. Remarkably, there are no hairline cracks in the ivory; no chips or missing fingertips. The crown of thorns, drops of blood, rope waist band, curling hair; all exceptional detail and aesthetic charm.
Marks: Signed J. Beck. I have not been able to locate the artist. The cross or panel mount is lost. Please note: I will ship only within the domestic United States.
