24K Gold Plated Damascene Damasquinado Maltese Cross Pendant Necklace on the Original Card.
This striking necklace has never been removed from the original padded card. It is a fabulous gold plated Maltese Cross with the traditional black and gold design of Damascene jewelry. The cross has a 3-dimensional appeal and the decoration is scrolls and curlicues with a 4-point center star. The chain is also gold plated.
The chain and cross are unmarked, but we are lucky to have all of the pertinent information on the card, including the maker's information on the back. The front states: "Damasquinado 1 calidad; Oro fine 24 kilates incrustado; A.G.E. Toledo". The cross measures about 1" by 1" and the chain is approximately 19" long.
Condition: no wear, damage, or finish loss.
What a gorgeous find, ready for wear or display in a Toledoware Damascene collection. It is a perfect gift for someone who loves Maltese crosses, as well!
