Fine Icons from a Distinguished Private Collection

A selection of fine icons from a distinguished collection in the USA. 

Fine Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator in silver and enamel oklad revetment cover

A fancy Russian icon of Christ Pantocrator with heavy gilded silver, cloisonné, and champlevé enamel oklad revetment cover. The cover’s borders cast and chased with interlace ornament and the corners are applied with heavy spandrels decorated with foliate forms. The decoration of Christ’s cast and chased garments are unusual in that they include champlevé ornament at neck and cuffs. Similarly, the halo combines stippled and polished grounds in an unusual manner; the enameled foliate elements forming the rays of the halo are reserved against a stippled ground while the remainder of the nimbus is polished. The ground is engraved in a Byzantine-inspired pattern of crosses.

Silver Marks: Struck on underside and garments with maker’s marks ADLER, Moscow hallmarks dated 1878, and 84 (.875) silver standard. Secondary 84 marks and maker’s marks are struck on the spandrels. Provenance: Sotheby’s New York, Silver, vertu and Russian works of art, 18 October 2001, lot 6.
