Венчальная пара икон - Спас Вседержитель и Иверская Богородица в серебряных окладах с эмалью

A rare and important  Russian wedding pair of late 19th-/early 20th-century icons of the Iveron Mother of God and Christ Pantocrator, each in gilded silver oklad revetment covers decorated with cloisonné and champlevé enamel. Silversmith Ivan Tarabrov, marketed by Orest Kurlyukov, Moscow, 1893 and 1894.

The halos of the Mother of God and the Christ Child decorated with cloisonné enamel harmonizing with the colors of the four applied spandrels, all of which are decorated in an unusual pattern of bright engraved scrolling floral ornament with a white heart and red “scepter” on a periwinkle blue ground. A shaped and applied gilded silver sheet forming the open pages of the Gospels is decorated in blue and red champlevé enamel with a passage from John 13: 34-35 (Заповедь новую даю вам, да любите друг друга: якоже возлюбих вы, да и вы любите себе: о сем разумеют вси..., trans: “A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all people will know [that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.]”). The Holy Figures’ garments cast and chased in trompe l’oeil work imitating draped textiles with floral and geometric ornament as well as a fringe. The ground engraved with a Byzantine ornamental pattern of interwoven hearts. The outer borders chased and polished with scrolling floral ornament against a matted ground, a pattern inspired by 17th- century Russian metalwork. The lower borders are applied with gilded silver and champlevé enamel identificatory plaques.

The Wedding Icons is a matching pair of icons - usually one of the Holy Savior and the other of the Mother of God - made in the same style to be presented by the families of the parents to the newlyweds. As the Orthodox tradition goes, after the Sacrament of Matrimony, the priest gives the bridegroom an icon of the Savior and the bride an icon of the Most Holy Theotokos. During the service, the icons are held within the folds of an embroidered linen cloth by children (in lieu of ring bearers). These icons accompany the married couple throughout their lives and are the main icons in their home icon corner.
