Presented here is an Antique hand carved wooden Maltese cross rosary necklace in excellent condition. Each little bead is a perfect little Maltese cross carved and made in France in the early 1900s. I attached a seriously gothic Antique Victorian Vulcanite cameo with a very ornate unusual frame. The cameo is relief profile of a Bacchante woman (Follower of Bacchus) with Vines of Grapes in her hair. Often called ‘ebonite’, vulcanite was the mass-produced rival to actual jet. It had the ability to be moulded and not carved. Made from the sap of Malaysian Ficus and Euphorbia rubber trees.
This pendant was once black but has faded to a very dark brown like many Vulcanite pieces can do. She is also in very good condition and of British Origin Circa 1880s.
