Up for your consideration rare antique (1847) icon in 84 silver oklad of Maria and Jesus. The oklad marked for Moscow, 1847, assayer Andrej Antonovich Kovalskij and made silversmith that I cannot identify.
Marks could be attributed to. Mihail Iakovlevich Isakov however, Im not sure. I did not take oklad off but the wood on the back looks really old. In the opening icon has extensive craquelure with some minor loses. Please, note, Im not a specialist in icons so please, make your own judgement.
I can only tell that oklad is really very old, corresponding to hallmarks. Again, please, look at the photos as they are part of the description.
Please, let me know if you would need additional photos. Measuring 5 ¾ x 5 ¾.
