Original antique embroidered icon of The Great Schema Cross
Amazing, extremely rare, and unique Russian icon on velvet - hand embroidered with pearls and semi precious stones - depicting the Great Schema Cross.
Russian, c. 1800. Complete with documentation from the Ikonenmuseum in Germany.
I have seen other examples, but they have almost all been on display in museums. Extremely rare, especially its given condition.
Affixed to panel with double splines on reverse. Excellent condition, very little loss or damage.
