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

Heb twijfels over echtheid iconen.
Verkocht als stammend uit eind 18e, begin 19e eeuw maar lijken recent geschilderd op oud paneel.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.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.
