Description
Altar cross with 2 candlesticks - Pewter/Tin
Netherlands - 1880

From the collection of Museum Sacrum, items from the rich Roman life collected by the sacristan.

An impressive crucifix, feet next to each other, with 2 matching candlesticks, made of tin which used to be silver-plated.
Almost all of the silver has worn, but the patina is beautiful.

The back of the cross is marked with 203 35 and even has a pattern as embellishment.
Iron decorations on the 4 tips which were once gilded.
The candlesticks have slightly curved upper rims, see pictures.
The wear on the details shows that the sculpture was touched often and with lots of love.

Your purchase will be properly packaged and sent with a track and trace code immediately after payment.
