Vintage Religious STERLING SILVER Cross with Chain
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: Meant to be worn by a gentleman, here's a blackened, hand chased cross set upon a medium link chain. Simple "over the head" chain with no clasp.
CONDITION: Excellent. The front of the cross is hand hammered with a dark patina; the back is plain silver but blackened - not with tarnish - this finish is definitely on purpose. The only reason I can think of for this is that the cross is turned when the wearer is in mourning, but I am not sure.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: Cross only is marked STERLING with a maker's mark I am not familiar with.
SIZE: Chain length is about 25". Cross measures 1-5/16" x 3/4". Chain is about 1/8" wide.
WEIGHT: 11 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
