Vintage FRENCH Darkened Metal Religious Icon - Sacred Heart of Jesus
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: From France, here's a darkened metal icon, religious in nature, depicting a lovely floral form with curlicues and holding an embossed panel of Jesus Holding his Sacred Heart. The center panel is held in place by means of 3 fold-over tabs so the panel could be removed, if desired, and another put in its place (care should be taken if the new owner desires to do this). The original easel is present,
CONDITION: Very nice though I do see traces of polish residue and under all that darkening - I'm not sure what the color of the base metal is - gold tone or silver tone.
METAL CONTENT: Unknown.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find. The bottom of the panel reads "Venite Ad Me Omnes".
SIZE: The frame measures 4-1/4" x 2-3/4". The image panel measures 1-5/16" x 2".
FINAL COMMENTS: Just fabulous!
