An exquisite French cross from the Victorian, Napoleon III era, circa 1880, with a strong contrast of a thin flat center, and delightfully ornate edges and ends.
The cross is an early gold filled, with the back a rose tone, possibly gold leaf.
It is fairly large for the time.
Very Napoleon III in spirit, the cross is delicate, elegant, and has A LOT of style!
It can be worn by men or women, with a gold chain, or with a thin black cord or ribbon.
Length: 1 7/8" (without ring) Width: 1 3/8".
( 4.75 cm) by ( 3.5 cm)
In very good condition. Slight aging of the metal along the flat area, very visible on the closeups, but very little in real.
Will be shipped "Registered" from Paris, including insurance and signature at delivery.
