      Hi, I can't see the objects in question very well at all. Indeed, I really can't see well enough to advance my opinion as an 'intelligent opinion'. However, you seem to need an answer, so let's see if we can at least advance a little. To me, the image in the central panel of the triptych looks like a reproduction of one of Giotto's paintings of St. Francis of Assisi. If so, it is unlikely that it is a Russian Orthodox triptych, as they don't venerate him as a saint. (Interesting discussion on this - apparently the monks at New Skete venerate St. Francis, and this has caused a controversy.) Further, the embellishments don't look Russian to me. I suggest that you Google 'Giotto images of St. Francis of Assisi'; you will find the image that I think is the source of the image in the central panel. If so, then this will probably be an item commercially produced in large numbers, and it will not have a significant monetary value - all things being equal. (If some 'noteworthy' personage owned this, then it might have some value.) Now, for the larger item. That is not a Russian Orthodox cross. This looks like a Roman Catholic devotional item for home use. I think that you will probably find the Stations of the Cross on the scrolls. Is there anything else inside that unit? Is there a "Stabat Mater"? Do you have prayers for the sick? Are there prayers in Latin for the Priest to administer the last rites with? Are there candles and a bottle for holy water in the box? If you could provide more information, we might advance more. One of the things I would risk my neck for if a fire broke out in my home is my Grandmother's altar. It is encased in oak, and has the appointments for the Viaticum (last Eucharist) customary in those days. Latin ritual, candles, holy water bottle, linen kerchief, cotton batting, paten for Eucharist, purple silk accoutrements - all the things the Priest would use when my Grandmother needed the last rites. I cannot tell for certain whether your box has one of these last rites units. I am pretty sure from its form and size that it does not. As for the Koenigs, I found several things by Googling them, including something for sale at D'Antiques and four items on ebay. On ebay, try searching under 'Catholic Last Rites', 'Koenig last rites', 'Koenig Stations of the Cross', 'Koenig Brothers', etc. The 'Stations' boxes I saw listed on ebay ranged from $75 to $175. To find out more about the Koenig Brothers, e.g., to find out if they were carpenters like yourself, I would ask a Reference Librarian at your local library. As for the blue book in the photo, I have no intelligent opinion whatsoever. Another question for a good librarian. The Stations box is an usual item; it was good to see it. Thanks very much for posting it. Hope this helps a little. Best wishes for success! miKKo

      Correction. Sorry, I committed a typo - I meant to say: "The Stations box is an unusual item."

      Lundy, I must apologize. I have physical limitations, and when I exceed them - as I did last night, I sometimes fail in courtesy. I do apologize for sounding so overbearing and aggressive in my post. It was not intentional. Thank you for your great courtesy! It was a pleasure to assist. Kind regards, miKKo
