18th or 19th CENTURY BRONZE RUSSIAN ENAMELED ICON $ 165 U.S.
This is an early 18th or 19th century brass or bronze icon, depicting a saint holding a staff in his left hand, with a banner that has an iconic cross? on it. He has something in his upheld right hand. There appears to be an open tomb to the lower left with an angel next to that. The sky is baked blue enamel. It is about 2 3/4" high, (excluding the hanger), by 2 1/2 ", and is in great condition considering it's age. If anyone can provide additional information as to the name of the saint, it would be greatly appreciated. We'd be happy to combine your purchases in order to save shipping expense
