Cross Mystery - Can You Help?

Home » Newsroom » Cross Mystery - Can You Help

Tarvinonline received an email recently from one of our followers in Canada regarding the purchase of " a beautiful wax carving of the Christ head on a cross measuring about seven inches by five inches, from a local church in Vancouver (Canada)."

Cross 1

The reader, Christine Lymm, was "hoping to find out more about the cross and the makers of this unique artwork."

You may ask why Christine contacted Tarvinonline, well, on the reverse of the cross there's a label (as pictured) that describes it as being part of the Tarvin Collection!


Ed:"has anyone else come across "The Tarvin Collection? Is it related at all to Tarvin?"

Please lets us have your suggestions and will will pass them on to Christine
