Tichvine Virgin Icon

Regular price $485.00

Russian Icon of the Tichvine Virgin. The icon is handpainted with egg tempera on wood panel. The riza is firmly fixed and we did not remove to examine, the painting beneath may be schematic, if any. The riza is beautifully hand repoussed silver over copper. Note the attention to the hands. The filagree halos are gold plated and most unusual. The icon measures 6 3/4" tall x 5 3/8" wide. The back is covered with a more modern cloth. The icon has not been restored and could use a proper cleaning. We date the Icon circa 1890, legal antique. Stock item #02/pg
