Piese metalice de inventar bisericesc din Basarabia (secolul XIX - începutul secolului XX)
The author analyses the late modern gold and metal cultic objects from
churches and monasteries in Bessarabia and archival as well as museum materials. The
religious objects were partly imported from Poland, Ukraine or Russia and partly
produced by locally either by local silversmiths and black smiths or by foreign masters
invited from neighbouring areas. The workshops for the fabrication and
commercialization of religious object (opened by Cara-Stoianov, E. Proţenco, and so on)
or the Workshops of the Archbishopric of Chișinău (established in 1911) produced
various objects with historical and artistic value such as pectoral crosses, metallic frames
for icons and books, cultic vessels, bells.
