Bronze without glazes - after the patterns of Vyg foundries in Pomorye - exquisite state of preservation

Pectoral icon belonging to Russian metal icons, realised after the patterns of Vyg foundries.
The icon shows modest signs of wear due to rubbing, but it is in fine condition.
Size when open:
14.2 x 11.6 x 0.5-07 cm.
Weight: 20 g.
The crucifix, with its characteristic eight-point Byzantine shape, has two additional crossbars: the upper one, called a titulus, and a bottom bar typically tilted and called the Cross of Mercy. On back is an inscription reproducing the first few lines of the Praise to the cross. Dimensions: 10.8 x 6.1 x 0.3-05 cm.
Icon on wood representing saint Simeon of Verkhoturye, the Righteous, from the late 19th century. It was realised on a single board with egg tempera technique on a levkas basis; on top left is the Pantocrator blessing. Size: 13.3 x 10.7 x 1.2 cm.
Three family icons, coming from a family asset intended for domestic worship.

Expertise attached, with detailed transliteration and description of symbols.

    Zakelijke afwikkeling was prima.
    Heb twijfels over echtheid iconen.
    Verkocht als stammend uit eind 18e, begin 19e eeuw maar lijken recent geschilderd op oud paneel.

    Le due grandi icone, composte ciascuna da una sola tavola dalle dimensioni quasi identiche, e i soggetti sulle stesse dipinti indicano che facevano parte dell’ordine delle Grandi Feste di una iconostasi. Su quell’iconostasi le icone erano state fissate con chiodi, alcuni dei quali ancora compaiono, piegati, sul versus. L’autenticità e l’antichità delle icone si possono ricavare dal dettaglio delle “teste” dei chiodi presenti sul rectus: le teste sono sopra la pellicola pittorica e non sotto.

    Ho ricevuto nei tempi e modi stabiliti l'icona di S. Giorgio che mi sono aggiudicato all'asta.
    Mi ritengo pertanto soddisfatto dell'acquisto.
