This is a very beautiful antique crucifix. We recently purchased several items from the heirs of an estate in which their parents traveled the world and had a second home in Paris. This lovely cross is Circa 1890 and is from Paris. The cross is made of Mother Of Pearl and silver. It measures 3 inches to the top of the bale and 1 1/2 inches wide. It is accompanied with a 24 inch contemporary sterling silver chain. We have not polished the cross. We like it with the original patina, however it will polish bright if desired. This is a very attractive piece with a classic simplicity in style and intriguing history.
