Germany or Bohemia; ca. 1750
Approximate size: 19.5 x 11.5 cm
A beautifully engraved reliquary cross cast in openwork brass with silver plating. Brass finials flank the horizontal beam and base of the cross while expertly engraved crystals are set behind its openwork design, featuring a series of attractive floral motifs and the centralized icon of the Lamb of God, or Agnus Dei. A careful hand and talented engraver has embellished the sides of the crucifix with a handsomely executed pattern while its reverse continues a scrolling floral border motif with a centralized Christogram: IHS.
Altogether, this precious artwork is both an elegant and noble devotional artwork, refined and tastefully realized.
Condition commensurate with age, including some minor fissures along the openwork patterns.
