ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Italian 800/900 Silver & Micromosaic Religious Cross Pendant - PAX
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1895 or so
ITEM: What a pendant! Made in Italy of silver and featuring an inlaid micromosaic design. The pendant is made up of the letters PAX (Peace) and features, as the main focal point, the Dove of Peace (Holy Spirit). While the pendant can mean PAX-PEACE it also can denote a symbol for Pope Pius X, one of the best loved Popes holding office in the Vatican.
CONDITION: Very nice with no tessarae missing. The bottom left corner of the pendant has not been soldered completely so a small split is slightly visible. The split does not show when the pendant is worn.
METAL CONTENT: 800 or 900 Silver
HALLMARKS: None, which is normal for old Victorian silver. Silver content has been acid tested.
SIZE: From top of bale to bottom of pendant measures 2-1/4" Actual size of the pendant is 7/8" x 2".
WEIGHT: 8.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: A really nice religious piece needing just the right chain to set it off (mine is for display purposes only)!
