A beautiful and ornate standing crucifix from France dating to 1900 with a gilded painted finish, delicate golden metal fringe around the wooden cross, and a golden lamb at the foot of the cross, representing Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for the sins of humanity.
As it is often difficult to determine the exact composition of metal objects due to the prevalent use of metal plating and alloys, EuroLux Antiques uses the term metal rather than the more specific terms copper, brass, aluminum, steel, etc. for its listings in order to avoid confusion.
In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.
Shows normal wear to the finish and miscellaneous nicks, dings, and scratches due to age and use. One piece of the star behind Christ's head is missing and Christ's nose is damaged.

Jesus of Nazareth (2 BC - 36 AD), also known as Jesus Christ, is the central figure of Christianity and is revered by most Christian churches as the Son of God and the incarnation of God. The principal sources of information regarding the life of Jesus and His teachings are the four canonical gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) in the New Testament. Biblical scholars agree Jesus was a Galilean Jew, who was regarded as a teacher and healer. He was baptized by John the Baptist and crucified in Jerusalem under the order of Pontius Pilate. Christian views of Jesus center on the belief that he is divine, is the Messiah whose coming was prophesied in the Old Testament, and that he was resurrected after his crucifixion. His mother was the Virgin Mary, also known as Our Lady or the Madonna.
, SACRED HEART
The Sacred Heart is a religious devotion to Jesus' physical heart as the representation of the divine love for humanity. The Sacred Heart is often depicted in Christian art as a flaming heart shining with divine light, pierced by the lance-wound, surrounded by a crown of thorns, surmounted by a cross and bleeding. Sometimes the image is over the body of Jesus with his wounded hands pointing at the heart. The wounds and crown of thorns allude to the manner of Jesus' death, while the fire represents the transformative power of love.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary, also called the Sacred Heart of Mary, refers to the physical heart of Mary, the mother of Jesus, as a symbol of Mary's interior life, her joys and sorrows, her virginal love for God, her maternal love for her Son, and her compassionate love for all people. Traditionally the heart is pierced with seven wounds or swords, in homage of the seven sorrows of Mary, and seven Hail Mary's are said daily in honor of the devotion.
The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic ceremony in which a priest or head of household consecrates the members of a household to the Sacred Heart. A blessed image of the Sacred Heart, either a statue or a picture, is then enthroned in the home to serve as a constant reminder to those who dwell in the house of their consecration to the Sacred Heart.

Religion is often described as a communal system for the coherence of belief focusing on a system of thought, unseen being, person, or object that is considered sacred, divine, or of the highest truth. The Christian religion is centered on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God.
Christianity has played a prominent role in shaping Western civilization since the 4th century. Currently Christianity has between 1.5 billion and 2.1 billion followers, representing about a quarter to a third of the world's population. With more than 1 billion members, the Roman Catholic Church is the largest church representing over half of all Christians and one sixth of the world's population.

The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks!

A Note About Shipping EuroLux Antiques takes a great deal of pride in its packing and shipping. Please keep in mind that packing fragile and irreplaceable vintage and antique items is not a quick or cheap endeavor. Proper packaging is expensive and bulky and takes a great deal of time to do the job correctly. Boxes are often far larger than most customers (or eBay) would imagine when packed properly. Occasionally, eBay's shipping calculator over-estimates shipping charges. We make a concerted effort to refund grossly excessive shipping charges whenever possible.
When a customer selects UPS Ground, we sometimes ship with an equivalent service such as FedEx or DHL. The shipping charges are similar, and we have found these companies also offer our customers superior customer service. We also occasionally upgrade shipping from USPS Parcel Post to Priority or UPS/FedEx/DHL Ground.
We are a small, family-owned business and our aim is to get your purchase to you as quickly as possible as safely as possible. Delays occasionally can occur due to
