Lot 126c, Auction 8/17/2017: 18th C. Russian Bronze Amulet - Christ, Saints

Russia, ca. 18th to 19th century CE. A flat bronze plaque with a relief portrait of a saint standing beneath a smaller relief of Christ's head. Russian writing is above the large saint's head and two smaller figures of saints are above his shoulders. There is a hole in the back, for suspension, and four holes around the edges, although their use is unclear (perhaps to put a piece of glass over?). Size: 1.95" W x 2.6" H (5 cm x 6.6 cm)

Condition: A small hole has been drilled in the lower left of the plaque that does not appear to be original but is not impacting the artwork. Two of the original loops are broken.

Provenance: Ex-Private LA County collection formed over the period between 1980 and 2000.
