1920s Brass & Ebony NUNS CROSS with Inri & Skull/Crossbones
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1920 or so
ITEM: More than likely made in Germany, here's a nicely sized wall cross or crucifix, commonly referred to as a Nuns Cross because of the simplicity of materials - steel and ebony. INRI and Skull & Crossbones pieces are present.
CONDITION: Very nice with a great patina to the front. The back ebony shows a bit of "lining" due, I am told, by the insertion of the steel pins into the wood and causing expansion in the grain. Details to all the metal parts is good with definition to all the pertinent pieces.
METAL CONTENT: I'm saying Steel as I can't think of any other silver metal this hard and cold!
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: 6" x 3"
FINAL COMMENTS: If you like your religious collectibles with a bit of age to their look, then this is the piece for you.
