    £85.00
    This item is out of stock

    A very special offering. This triptych, properly called a Skladen, depicts Mary, the Mother of God, and St. John, the Forerunner of Christ, giving supplication to Christ (an image traditionally called Deisis). These are very rare to find old, and are often prohibitively expensive and in a state of disrepair. The Guild, however, has found a source of these in Russia. They are made in a limited quantity, and we are happy to offer them here on our website. 

    These make a wonderful travelling iconostasis, or addition to the home.

    The whole piece is comprised of three hinged panels, each with its own icon, measuring 2.4 in X 2.75 in. The whole measures 7.25 in when fully expanded.

    Please NoteSpecial Order item- please contact us for availability. Whilst we endeavour to keep these in stock, we may occasionally need to obtain further stock directly from the Old Believer communities we work with in Russia, which can take some time to arrange, in order to fulfil your order. If you require a Lestovka or Brass icon within a deadline please message us and we will let you know what we have available from stock.
