Vintage French Celluloid Croix de Berceau - Cross with Angel/Putti/Cherub
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1920 or so
ITEM: From France, a celluloid Croix de Berceau (Crib Cross) that would have been presented to the newborn at the time of birth or christening. The cross is grained to simulate the more expensive ivory pieces that most families could not afford. Original ring is intact. The cherub face is nicely detailed, maybe not as ornate as some I have seen but very nice nonetheless.
CONDITION: Very nice with just age related marks. No burns or dark spots. Coloring is consistent throughout.
SIZE: From top of ring (when up) to bottom measures 7"; width is 2-13/16". Thickness of the cross is 13/16".
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
