Description: Russian Christian Icon: St John the Baptist and Jesus, with oklad, 18th century. St John the Baptist holds a bowl with Jesus child with left hand.

There are two inscriptions on the metal oklad: in the left corner 4 letters (probably for St John); in the right corner 3 letters PRE, which means pure. Height: 14 inches = 36 cm. Width: 12 inches = 31.5 cm. Weight: 1670 g = 3 lb. 10 oz. A lot of carved writings on the back in Old Russian Staroslavic language.
