    Russian Orthodox Icon of Entombment (Uspenie), in Bronze and Enamels, mid- to late-XIX Century.

    Russian Orthodox Icon of Entombment (Uspenie), in Bronze and Enamels, mid- to late-XIX Century.

    The icon is in bronze and enamels of four colors: white, blue, dark blue, and fern green. Measures 90 mm wide by 99 mm tall (approximately 3.5"x 4"); approx. 4 mm thick - noticeably thicker than most other contemporary bronze icons of similar format. Features beautifully detailed artwork in unusually high sculptured profile. The icon depicts the Christ's body being placed into shroud and the lamentation.

    The icon is in very good overall condition. There are some losses to enamel along the edges, but most of the original enamelwork is still intact. There are no repairs of any kind. Most importantly, the beautiful details of the tri- dimensional artwork are nearly pristine, showing practically no wear even to the high points - which is uncommon for an antique Russian bronze icon. A good amount of the original gilt finish is clearly visible in recessed areas. Overall, a highly unusual and attractive piece!

    Please note, pen in our photo is for size reference.
