Votive altar - Lacquered and golden wood - 19th century

Description
Votive altar - Lacquered and golden wood - 19th century
Italy

Lacquered and gilded wooden small votive altar from the end of the 19th century. A sculpture had to be placed inside it in order to pray.
As you can see from the photos there are some small gaps in the polychromy or gilding; maybe on the two sides the irons inserted in the step were used to set two candle holders. With regard to the structure, it is in order and without missing parts.
Dimensions: approx. 66 x 44 x 25 cm, on the back 64x23 cm.
