An authentic antique Museum Quality 17th century Spanish Baroque Bronze and Ebony . A gild bronze Corpus Christi mounted on a black ebony cross with terminals with gilded brass mounts. The head is inclined to the left and cast with long, curly hair, and an emaciated torso draped with flowing perizonium about the waist. The cross rests on a turned base weighted with a lead plate at the bottom for stability.

Height: 30.5 cm (12 in).

CONDITION: A minor vertical age crack in the wood, gold gilding worn out in some spots of the bronze figure of Christ. The crucifix has old repairs which were made over the span of its 300 year history. The lead plate at the base is most likely an early 19th century addition. The brass rectangular plate is crudely screwed to the back of the cross to support the structure of the cross, where the base appears to be added in the late 19th century. We do not perform any restorations to antiques, or repairs, as it is a sign and proof of the age.
