Offering for sale a fabulous old crown for a religious statue, Saint or Santos. This is a silver tone metal, could be pewter, with wonderful metalwork. At the top, a cross with emerald green paste or rhinestone, and around the sides are eight ruby red stones, four large, four small. This is a good size crown, measuring 6" tall to the tip of the cross, and 3 " across on the inside of the crown, possibly a tiny bit more. There is a curved support inside the crown with a hole in the center as some old statues would have a spike on which this would fit. This could be removed with metal cutters if necessary to fit your statue. We acquired this from a collector who was willing to part with several of his fine crowns. He presented this one as 19th Century. The stones are all prong set, and over the years may have been replaced, we do see evidence of some glue under one, so they may not be the original stones, but they are lovely.We have not tried to polish this crown, but the prior owner says it will polish.
