Tramp Art Crucifix
Dimensions:W: 29cm (11.4")H: 59cm (23.2")D: 18cm (7.1")
A beautiful example of a large antique tramp art crucifix. A stunning & early piece of tramp art, intricately layered in the traditional manner with notch carved wooden strips & finished with a detailed metal corpus.
Tramp art was made by untrained artisans from around 1880 to 1940 & was naively made using easily obtained materials such as cigar boxes, natural wood & reclaimed fixtures & fittings. This piece is an exceptional surviving example of such work & displays beautifully.
Late 19th century.
Wear commensurate with age with only minor wear & losses as pictured. Unrestored.
