Lovely Antique Russian Icon of The Blessed Mary holding the Bible, with her other hand on her heart. The quality of this Icon is very fine with beautiful colors and detailed painting. Her blue mantle covers the red gown she wears underneath. As seen in the photos, the gilded & painted covering is metal, which has been attached by tacks over the wood, covered in the finely woven linen base. Most probably there was a piece of colorful velvet covering the raw linen (with a hook for hanging). Along 2 of the edges is imprinting that I have tried to photograph for you. I can't translate it but I can identify that it says "Mockba" aka Moscow, and 1898, (April?) This Icon is in very good condition consistent with her age dated 1898. Measures: 4 1/2" wide x 1/2" thick x 5 1/4" high.
