Vintage ITALIAN Gilt Metal & Micromosaic Religious Cross Pendant with Saint Theresa Center (Removeable)
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1920 or so
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 - just lift the tabs) and inserted a portrait of Saint Theresa. Don't like my pic? Insert your own!
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: 3-5/8" high (not including bale or jump ring) x 2-7/16" wide
WEIGHT: A weighty 37.3 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Not as ornate as the earlier micromosaic crosses from the era but pretty darn nice!
