This is a stunningly rare large antique cast iron, wood, and glass floor sacred tabernacle from a church around the turn of the century. It is a very large floor tabernacle measuring 48 1/4 inches tap by 13 inches wide. It has an exquisite Victorian style and done with an abundance of intricate ornate detailing throughout. The legs are made from very thick cast iron and have a nice gold gilded finish which has acquired a lovely patina from age. It is made of two curved pieces of iron which are connected in the center by decorative ornate bolts. They are very ornate and have a gorgeous bird/figural scene on both sides. The tabernacle is made from cylindrical textured amber glass which rotates on a recess to open and close. It has a hand carved wooden top and bottom which have nice color and are connected to very ornate 6 sided brass shafts. They are very ornate, done in high relief, and fastened with ornate sprouting flowers iron bolts on top. There is also a very ornate large solid iron finial in the center. The piece is in exquisite condition and is extremely rare. There is one small condition issue as shown in the last photo. The edge of the curved glass is chipped but can be hidden when closed as shown in the photo. Thank you for visiting “Dusty Treasures ” and please feel free to browse through.
