This is a fantastic Vintage Tramp Art "Crown of Thorns" Standing Cross. This piece was made by carving all the pieces, thin linking them together like a puzzle. No Glue or nails on this piece. It has a bit of flex about it, though when set on a table it will click into place and stand. Cross has a small tag identifying the piece back to the Turn of Century, as it seems to have been given as a gift.
These pieces do have this characteristic, as the joints loosen over time, though it is very stable and complete. Cross is over a hundred years old, and has survived in great shape.
***It does have a tendency to lean back a bit, so it's best to be supported on a stand or set against a wall. Piece is in overall excellent condition, with a super rich, naturally aged patina. Please Zoom the photos to appreciate all the fine details, as well as to best understand overall condition.
Piece measures 17.75" x 13" wide x 4.5" deep on base.
