A large, scarce 'Crown of Thorns' tramp-art frame.

This example has been made entirely by the chip & notch method, with timber interlocking at right angles to give a distinctive prickling effect to the frame.

Over time this has drawn parallels with Jesus' Crown of Thorns - hence the name.

The term tramp art characterises the craftsmanship of itinerant workers, fabricating useful items with a penknife from waste materials such as cigar boxes and pliable wood predominantly in the early 20th century.

A pleasing warp to the lower part of the frame.

Early 20th Century - Eastern Europe.

H: 23 inches / W: 20 inches

*There are slight damages commensurate with age however the piece is in overall good condition*

Price does not include delivery.

 

SOLD.
