Antique FRENCH Silverplate & Rhinestone Paste Filigree Cross!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so - possibly earlier
ITEM: A stunning filigree cross from France - all darkened silver (patina) with embellishments of faceted rhinestone pastes in ruby, rose and pale green hues. The cross is known as a "regional" piece of jewelry - coming from a certain province in France. The stones look to be foil backed (closed back) but I am not entirely sure - confirmation would only come with removing the stones from their setting. Original bale is present which is so nice as it really does make the pendant complete!
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: I am stating silverplate as I can find no French hallmarks but if the piece is silver, well, so much the better.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: From top of bale to bottom measures 3-1/4" x 1-3/4" wide.
WEIGHT: 10.3 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Absolutely scrumptious!
