This is a beautiful antique station of the cross from the turn of the century. It is a relief scene of the crucifixion. Our Lord is in the foreground while four women mourn at the foot of the cross. Their expressions of sorrow and loss are profoundly moving.
This piece is made of plaster designed to look like aged wood.
This is a stunning vintage station likely once used in a church. The scene shows Jesus on His knees while Simon the Cyrenian helps lift some of the weight. Behind Simon is a member of the Sanhedrin wearing rich robes and jewels. He is pointing at Simon forcing him to help Our Lord.
The colors of the lithograph are still vibrant particularly Christ’s Halo and red robes.
Please Note: There is no protective glass and the both the frame and lithograph have a few scratches. The most noticeable scratch is along Christ’s hand. The roman numeral for this station is also missing. Please See Pictures.
This is a very rare set of antique Stations of the Cross. Each station is a highly detailed engraving and two have been augmented augmented with subtle watercolor highlights. The scenes are housed in beautiful handmade paperboard frames and hung by ribbon. These are remarkably unique; we have never found anything similar.
We believe these pieces date to the 1700s, if not earlier. And they are in excellent condition, considering they are approximately 300 years old.
Condition: Some of the frames have spots of lost color. Please see pictures.
