Antique Crucifixes and Medals 4
SOLD! Thank You. Skull and Crossbones Rosewood Antique Crucifix $75
Nicely made, 5", heavy early 20th century skull and crossbones crucifix. Wood inlay appears to be rosewood rather than the darker ebony. The skull and crossbones are rather flat but the corpus is beautifully detailed. Very nice example of the crucifixes worn by priest, and nuns and also owned by laypersons. These were a common "gift" to Indians in post Civil War times. They were also laid on the coffin of the deceased then given to the next of kin after the funeral. As always, I do not polish or clean any of my artifacts- I leave that to you.
