Rare antique 1700s hand carved polychromed wood applied wax altar crucifix cross
Up for sale is a rare antique early 18th century handmade wooden altar cross. It's carved completely by hand and finished with a painted polychromed finish. The cross is embellished with many symbolic instruments of passion on the face of the cross which are hand applied with wax. The cross is mounted to a hand carved tiered wooden base and has acquired a lovely patina from age. It measures 16 1/4 inches tall by 7 3/4 inches wide. The piece is overall in nice condition especially for age. It has some slight scratches to some of the wax symbols and some paint loss to the cross as shown. Which will be a charge of 7% due to New Jersey state law.

Please make sure to look at all pictures very closely before purchasing, as most pieces in my shop are non refundable. Most items are antique or vintage and could have usual ware from age.
