Icon, Month 'July' - Wood - Late 19th century
Russia

Russian month icon "July". Hand painted with egg tempera paints on a wooden plate with chalk background. Pretty detailed illustration of the saints. All saints are labeled in an special way.

The icon is in fairly good condition with typical age-related signs of usage, such as scratches, paint chips and a small rip on the lower right corner (see photos). Some saints, especially in the second row from the bottom in the middle, are slightly damaged (see photos). Relatively heavy, solid wood. On the back there are two sponkies available. The wood on the back lower left is sawn off or sanded off.

A piece for connoisseurs and collectors.

The photos are part of the description.

Size: 35.5x31x2.5 cm

It is a private sale without redemption.
