This is a rare and beautiful crucifix with open-worked Gothic details in the crucifix, and beautiful gold gilding. It is stunning to see how detailed the gilding is, with a mat satin finish combined with high gloss details. The water font is lined with cream colored enamel paint.
The Christ figure is signed by the artist'MERCIER'. The crucifix is mounted on a nicely shaped Onyx crucifix, that has a brass back plate.
It can be hung on the wall with the hook on the back. It is a great quality piece.
This piece was made around 1880 in France. Total height: about 12 1/4 inch / 31 cm. Some very minimal surface wear to the gilding and enamel paint, and some very minimal surface wear to the onyx. Some patina on the brass, some minor denting to the corner of the brass back plate, see the photos.
