Offering for sale a fabulous and quite old cross of carved rare black jet, circa mid 1800's. This is a very rare one, with carvings on both sides. On the front, vines and flowers twining up the cross; notice the intricate tiny details on the leaves ! In the center a square with more delicate carving and polishing, which matches the style used on the back; the entire back being also decorated. This is a large cross, measuring 3 & 1/8" tall, 1 & 3/4" wide, and is also thick and substantial. It is in quite good condition, with no significant damage and no repairs, there are a few tiny flea bites here and there. Usually if you can find an old carved jet cross they are not in such fine condition, and to find one that is carved on both sides is just amazing.
