Wonderful and very old large reliquary crucifix, with detailed figure of Jesus, the Corpus of Christ, nail mounted all original on a very detailed engraved reliquary cross complete with original opening turn knob, matching faux knobs on the other three cross ends; hanging loop at top and in very good condition; even including the interior glass compartments. This cross probably at one time held some sacred items, possibly owned by a Priest or Sister, and many times such rcontents may have been removed to be used in a Church setting or given to another member of the Clergy or Religious Order. The glass cross inside this crucifix is missing the glass on the right side only, probably how the contents were removed, but the glass actually was never necessary, most of these type crosses did not have glass inside them. On the front and back of the cross are engraved symbols, the front mostly stylized vines but on the back religious symbols including the ladder. The crucifix measures 5 & 1/2" tall and is in very good condition, of old bronze or heavy brass, from France, and in very good condition, heavy and sturdy.
