Byzantine crosses - Hanging wall candlestick
19,- Euro a piece
Two beautiful Byzantine crosses, to hang on the wall or in front of the window.
The Byzantine crosses offer the possibility to burn two candles.
Photos 1 to 7 are of cross 1, photos 8 to 12 are of cross 2.
These types of candlesticks have their origins in the former Byzantine Empire (Eastern Roman Empire).
They hung in Orthodox churches and in Russian houses.
These wall candlesticks are sometimes considered to be the precursor of the candle stands.
At the top is a man/warrior with a scimitar in one hand and a head or shield in the other.
There are two pendants: the two-headed eagle, each with an episcopal crown.
A reliquary holder is placed in the center of the cross.
The crosses are beautifully decorated and historically interesting, because much is still unclear.
Made from bronze/brass.
