Antique and Vintage French Crucifix Product Details
Dimensions (inches): 19.25H x 5W x 4.25D
Comment: This is one of the more unusual antique crucifixes that we have imported from France, with its bold and stylized design and the symbol of the snake. The crucifix dates to around the year 1900 and it is crafted in black wood and an aged silver-toned metal. It depicts Jesus on a simply rendered cross, above a bulbous accent that is adorned with the image of a snake. The letters INRI appear on a plaque above the head of Jesus, in traditional style. The black wood and handsome turned base creates a dramatic silhouette for this superb antique French crucifix.
