This is a striking wooden French crucifix with black, silver and gold colourings. The decorative cross has a gold and silver effect plate on the back, almost giving the appearance of angel wings. It has pretty gold detail edging with a metal Jesus pinned to the cross in gold and a small, disc of St. Francis hanging below Jesus' feet.
This stunning vintage crucifix would have been used as a focus for personal worship and prayer to St. Francis in a traditional French home. It can be wall mounted using a small loop at the top of the cross.
Small marks at top of crucifix where another motif, probably to St. Francis, would have been but has clearly been lost at some point in this piece's history. There is a small crack line on Jesus' left hip but it is sound and there is no need for repair.
