Russian icon "St. Nikolaus" from the 19th century (around 1850). Hand painted with egg tempera colors on a wooden board with chalk background. Perfect color matching, very rich colors. Strong facial expression of the saint. Also striking is the robe of the saint. All saints are labeled. The fonts are easy to read. The icon is in fairly good condition with typical age-related signs of usage, such as dirt, minor paint chips and scratches (see photos). Some restorations (face). The painting contains minimal craquelure. Above and below are Stirnsponkies available. Fairly heavy, solid wood.
All details are clearly visible in the photos. Photos are part of the description.
