Estimate: £150 - £200

Description: 19th century AD. A rectangular wooden icon with painted scene of Iverskaya Virgin (????????? ????? ????????? ??????????) with some absent and repainted parts; covered by a richly decorated silver-coloured metal riza (oklad) with substituted nimbus, inscription to the lower part ???????? (for Iverskaya"). 260 grams, 22.2 x 18cm (8 3/4 x 7"). Property of a West London gentleman; acquired before 2000. In 1648, Patriarch Nikon of Moscow commissioned an exact copy of the famous Panaghia Portaitissa icon from Iviron monastery to be made and sent to Russia. Almost immediately upon its arrival, numerous miracles were attributed to the icon and the Iverskaya Chapel was built in 1669 to enshrine it, just next to the Kremlin walls in Moscow. According to a popular custom, everyone heading for Red Square or the Kremlin visited the chapel to pay homage at the shrine, before entering through the gate. Beggars and outlaws would pray there next to the highest royalty and even the Tsar himself. The chapel was demolished in 1931, but later completely rebuilt with a new icon replacing the lost original.

Condition Report: Fine condition, some restoration.
