This wonderful crucifix is French in origin and created from Mother of Pearl with silver cappings and garnish. It measures a large 3 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4" wide. The crowned cap endings are finely detailed along with Christ himself. The cross is pinched onto an elegant light blue satin bow and has been there for some time now. The silver content is unmarked and unknown as the endings have tested positive for 800 grade silver yet the nails are silver plated. The bow has a bit of staining and both the top and bottom cap are a bit loose but holding strong. This is a fabulous piece of religious decor or accessory!
