Antique Altar Crucifix, 19th Century French Crucifix, Filigree Metalwork, Corpus Christi In Bisque circa 1830

This is really interesting and it caught my eye instantly at a recent antique fair here in France.

The Corpus Christi and the INRI plaque are made from Bisque porcelain, unusual in itself, particularly because both are still in perfect condition.

Behind the Corpus Christi is a gilded metal filigree star-burst in plain metal.

At the foot of the cross is the base which has been gilded and has The Sacre Coeur on the front.

There are, in fact, two crosses. The first is attached to the base and is of simple pine wood. To this is attached another soft wood which may have come from The Holy Land as it was first veneered with a fine coat of plaster then coated in silver.

When new it would have looked spectacular. Now it looks amazing.

The whole piece stands 44 cm tall and is 11.5cms at its widest point.

The Corpus Christi measures 19 cm by 11 cm
