Antique Russian icon ‘holidays’. Hand-painted with egg tempera colour on a wooden panel with chalk background. Typical method of icon production in the 18th and 19th centuries in Russia. This could be a Northern Russian icon from ca. 1850.
The icon is in satisfactory condition and may need to be restored (see photos). The icon has typical age-related signs of wear and tear in the form of paint chips, paint wear, scratches and dirt (see photos). The painting and the faces of the saints are depicted relatively detailed. Perfectly matched colour contrasts. The painting has minimal craquelure. Partial restorations are present. This is a monastery icon. There is an obvious brand stamp on the back of the icon. Probably a monastery stamp. There is probably a coat of arms of the monastery depicted in the middle of the stamp (barely decipherable). The font in the stamp can only be partially interpreted. Only a few icons were branded at the time (rarity). The icon has light Levkas (deepening in the wood). Possibly an indication for the second half of the 18th century. All Biblical scenes are labelled. The texts are easy to read. Two cross-sponkis are on the back. The icon is slightly curved.
All details are well-visible in the photos. The pictures are part of the description.
