A charming and well-detailed English antique diorama depicting Elijah’s Chariot.
19th Century made.
The diorama is based on the biblical story of the prophet Elijah, who was whirled up to heaven on a chariot of fire drawn by horses of fire. He was a prophet who wrought miracles and many tales exist of his return to earth to help Jews in trouble. It is also Elijah who is supposed to blow the shofar to announce the coming of the Messiah.
Condition – Please refer to the images. Very good overall. There is some surface wear commensurate with age, specifically to the frame. The subject matter itself is in good order and is offered for sale in original condition. For a further detailed condition report, please contact us.
