appears to be signed on the back in faint pencil (difficult to make out & photograph but, there / also, a strip of masking tape with a name although, different from the pencil)
• late 1800s – early 1900s • original old ripple glass - a few light glass scratches - free of cracks • tiniest of the most amazing fretwork – I am still in awe over the workmanship! - one small area facing left on the side has shifted over time as shown - there might be a few other minuscule areas of loss
• vertical & horizontal cross / crucifix is multi-layered in a pyramid as shown – possibly, 12 layers (difficult to count) • colour of the cross is a cream not, white – hard to photograph due to glass glare & it being recessed • cross is mounted on black velvet within the shadow box
• hand made wood framing & box painted in gold - age related frame edges & corner chippy as shown (easily touched up by the end user if one so wished)
• actual cross measures: 10 ½”H x 7”W at base • total shadowbox measures: 15 ¾”H x 13 ¼”W x approx. 3”Deep • old hanging wire (recommend to replace for safety) • Dutch descent? - German descent? • $390.00 – shipping available
