|Offered here is a beautiful niche from a church. It is Catholic and probably Italian. The colors are spectacular in red, blue and gold. A gilt cross and the letters IHS are front and center, and a fine carved shell in gilt is at the top. This niche is a corner piece, curved in the front, and was likely built in. The back of it is much later and probably added when it was removed from the corner. It stands 26" high and is 16" across.|
