Vintage Olive Wood, Mother of Pearl & Ebony Crucifix from Jerusalem
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1930 or so
ITEM: From the Holy Land, here's a crucifix of olive wood with inlaid black ebony sections and mother of pearl inlay. The cross is very well made has an Inri at the top as well as mother of pearl discs at the back that feature black writing. I believe the discs represent the 14 Stations of the Cross as there are 14 discs in all.
CONDITION: Very nice for its age. Inlay is all present. Mother of pearl has patinated a bit darkly in places - might be dirt. Same with the Corpus - I think a light clean is in order overall.
SIZE: From top MOP section to bottom bead measures 6-1/2"; width is 3-3/4".
FINAL COMMENTS: If you love the look of old religious, then you will LOVE this cross!
