Antique Victorian French 800/900 Silver & Mother of Pearl Crucifix/Cross Pendant
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From France, a mother of pearl crucifix or cross pendant set with silver findings. This cross is on the small size - probably a young child's First Communion Cross that may have hung from the end of a rosary - but has some nice filigree ball ends to cap off the mother of pearl ends..
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. Detailing is quite ornate on not only the corpus but also the ends. INRI is present.
METAL CONTENT: Being French either 800 or 900 Silver.
HALLMARKS: 2 French poincons (punch marks) on the bale of the cross indicating silver content and country of manufacture.
SIZE: From top of bale (not jump ring) to bottom measures 2-1/8"; width is 1-1/2".
WEIGHT: 3.5 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Find the right chain or rosary to wear/utilize once more! They just don't make 'em like this anymore!
