Antique Spanish Altar - c. 1915
This antique small altar features a lithograph of the Spanish Virgen de las Angustias, a 16th century sculpture by Gaspar Becerra. Among other honorary titles, it holds the patronage and protection of the city of Granada. The sculptural group, made up of the image of the Virgin and of the dead Christ, is venerated in the city of Granada in the Royal Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows, on what was the old hermitage of Saints Úrsula and Susana.
The triptych features three wooden and leather hand-crafted panels that are wired/hinged together and can be folded. "Doors" are decorated with scrolling gilded gesso foliate motif on wood trims. The hinges/wires that hold the "doors" are original and work well when opened and closed.
The altar is 4.5" tall x 8" wide when fully opened.
