This lovely standing crucifix was for home and also might have been taken with the family while traveling. I love the patina and verdigris! It is heavy cast bronze/brass. The figure of Christ is firmly attached with the 2 little rounds you might see on the back.I found it in Belgium, very dark with age. As I cleaned the back to try to read the impressed markings, the verdigris began blooming, so I continued to clean! I leave it to you, if you want to make it shiny and bright...

Incredible handwork, most likely by several ladies of the Altar Guild, covers this detailed piece! The words in German heavily padded gothic lettering, proclaims "Innocent Lamb of God, Have Mercy on us". As I studied it, I found it to include so much symbolism. My interpretation... The reclining wounded Lamb on the Altar, symbolizes Christ in His sacrificial role and personifies innocence, gentleness and humility. The Sword of the Spirit, and the blood signify the sacrifice...

The measurements are 77" X 10".The hand embroidery is in excellent condition, the wonderful drawn work hem has a few broken brides as seen in photos. The German old Gothic letters are heavily padded...

It sits on little bun feet, one of which has been replaced with a makeshift part. There is a crack in the lacquer at the bottom of the Cross, but it doesn't go through to the wood. From 1800's . Stands 14" tall...

This symbolic piece was most likely made at home by a very skilled embroideress. The stylized lotus and passion flower designs are indicative of the arts and crafts era. The padded ancient lettering in German translates to "He is merciful" or "God is Merciful". Notice the turkey red monogram under the lace at the bottom. Over the years,the turkey red has faded to a softer shade but is still stunning. The wide border of beautiful Valenciennes lace, measuring 1 3/4" wide, was obviously added lat...

SOLD Thank You! $199.00
Magnificent! I never can resist turkey red embroidery and this is some of the finest deeply padded embroidery I've seen from "Ladies of the Church".The hand embroidered border of fleur-de lis is so beautiful and precise. The light weight linen is finely woven and flawless but for a few small rust stains that I just noticed while inspecting closely. The German translates to My Merciful Jesus, and it is most desirable Swiss embroidery. It meaures 36" across x 34". ...
