This is a nice condition Vintage Lord's Prayer Cross Necklace made of wood that resembles Bog Oak or Ebony. It appears to us to be of a lighter wood that has been stained black. It retains a metal eyelet as a bail and a woven elastic necklace cord is attached to it. The cord is likely a more recent addition. The stanhope shows the Lord's Prayer and presents itself as an ornamental old English script similar to those used in Canterbury England in the 16th century. We estimate this cross to have been made in the mid 20th century about 1950. It is not likely that this is a mass produced piece but rather something more along the lines of trench-art. The stanhope is nice and clear and easy to read in spite of the highly ornamental font style. A nice piece to wear or collect.
