Gothic Victorian Pressed Horn Cross with Ivy Leaves
Beautiful trailing ivy leaves adorn this pressed horn Gothic Victorian cross. Ivy symbolized dependence and endurance in preserving the memory of a loved one.
It measures 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches. It is beautifully decorated but very difficult to photograph because it is all black.
It is in very fine condition with no losses or splits or cracks.
The notion that plants have meaning is as old as man but in Victorian England it became a second language in a society where true feelings were rarely expressed in words. Ivy is the symbol of enduring never ending love that transcends from one world to the next. This pressed horn cross is entwined with ivy and worn close to your heart where those initiated into its meaning can smile and admire your fortitude for a lost loved one.
This cross conveys what a thousand words cannot say. I love antiques that have such meaning and reverence about them.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Black, Size: 4 inches by 2 1/2 inches
