Small Russian Finift Porcelain icon of St. Seraphim of Sarov

A small rectangular hand-painted velvet-backed finift porcelain icon in its original brass frame depicting Saint Seraphim of Sarov. Very good original condition. 

Saint Seraphim of Sarov (Серафим Саровский) († 1833), is one of the most renowned Russian monks and mystics in the Orthodox Church who was canonized in 1903. He is generally considered the greatest of the 19th century startsy (elders) and, arguably, the first. He is remembered for extending the monastic teachings of contemplation, theoria and self-denial to the layperson, and taught that the purpose of the Christian life was to acquire the Holy Spirit. He was canonized in 1903 in Sarov at the ceremony attended by the Tsar and senior members of the Russian Imperial family.
