This beautiful cross is made of sterling silver (so marked) beautifully cast by the lost wax method. The casting is detailed, the finishing work excellent. The silver has the beautiful patina of age. Included with the pendant is an 18" sterling rope chain. This cross is 2 3/4" long and 1 3/4" wide. It weighs 10.8 grams. The cross is in excellent original condition. The age and origin are indeterminate, but the piece is clearly hand-wrought by a skilled artisan.
