This amazing piece of history was obtained from the estate of a prominent California collector. It is a bronze Byzantine cross, Circa 491 to 1453 AD. This cross is hinged at the top and opens to reveal a compartment that would have held a sacred relic. Very unusual to find one in this great condition. It measures 2 inches by 1 3/16.
