A vintage, possibly antique, large wood and bronzed spelter wall hanging crucifix.
The crucifix has been cleaned lightly in order to retain what patina there is (particularly to the spelter figure) but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning. There is a scratch on Christ’s chest which may have been made to ascertain whether the figure of Christ is bronze or spelter (it is believed to be spelter). There are some small paint spatters which we have not been able to remove and the loop at the back is slightly oxidised. Although structurally sound, there are some scratches to the stained wood areas, and in particular, some small holes in the wood which may or not be woodworm. At the time of this description, we believe that if the holes ARE made by worm, they are old holes.
The crucifix measures approximately 22in top to bottom. The figure of Christ itself measures approximately 9in from the top of his hands to his feet and just under 6in hand to hand. Weighs over 1.15kg. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the first, or earlier, part of last century.
