This is an early antique European 800 silver filigree cross pendant with a pink enameled center cross on both sides. The figure of Jesus on the cross is enameled on one side. The top of the pendant bail is marked 1S. The metal tests positive for silver content slightly below sterling grade and is estimated to be at least 800 grade silver. The filigree may have had a gold wash finish at one time.
The pendant weighs 7.9 gr. It measures 1.25" x 2" x .25".
Condition: The enameled cross on one side has a break through the middle with enamel missing in that area. The bottom of the pendant appears to have a little bit of the wire filigree missing, but hard to tell for sure. Metal is tarnished from age.
This pendant makes a very special statement of your faith.
