C.1930 Italian Gilt Metal & Micromosaic Religious Cross Pendant
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1930 or so - may be earlier - may be later
ITEM: From Italy by way of France comes this Italian micro mosaic cross that could be placed on a wall or used as a pendant. It's not too large and it's not too small! The center section of the cross featured a picture of a Pope but no one really likes a Pope in their vintage pieces - well, at least I don't. So I took it out (easy to do) and inserted the head of a small angel. Don't like my pic? Insert your own! (Just take out the gold rim, lift the plastic covering, take out the pic and place your own item on the inside.)
CONDITION: Very nice with no glass tessarae (tiles) missing. Gilt metal has a patina of age about it.
METAL CONTENT: Gilt metal - gold over brass or base metal
SIZE: 3-1/2" high x 2-5/16" wide
WEIGHT: 18.3 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Not as ornate as the earlier micromosaic crosses but pretty darn nice!
