Vintage FRENCH Croix de Berceau with Raphael's Angel/Cupid!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
ITEM: From France, with an Art Deco appearance, here's a lovely hard plastic Crib Cross with a faux grain so that it could resemble the old Ivory Croix de Berceau of ancient times. With a ring at the top, the center of the cross bears a gold tone metal image of Raphael's Angel or Cherub or Putti or Cherubim. Too cute!
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: Gold Tone Metal
SIZE: From top of round ring to bottom measures 4-11/16"; width is 2-7/16".
FINAL COMMENTS: Croix de Berceau were baby items purchased for the newborn. The cross would be hung above the crib (on a wall) or on the crib itself to protect baby from harm. This is definitely a nice piece needing only a length of ribbon (which I can add on request) to make it complete.
Buy with Confidence. ROBINS NEST MIDWEST has the highest rating a shop can attain on Ruby Lane.

Re International Delivery
Ditto! As always, Import Regulations are in place for the shipment of silver/gold (fine) jewelry to other countries.
My UNDER $35 listings I will ship First Class International however I can only calculate postage when I know where the piece is going so I'll put POSTAGE TO BE DETERMINED in the International Section.
Any purchase OVER $35 must be checked against the new Import Regulations before I can send. Again, postage will be determined AFTER I check the regs. Each individual country now has its own particular set of rules regarding entry of items made of gold or silver into their country.
