This lovely French crucifix with angel heads bears a French hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. It is from the Victorian/Art Nouveau period.
It measures 1¾” (4.4cms), including the ring, by 1 and 1/8” (2.9cms). It weighs 4 grams.
The crucifix has cherubs’ heads on each of the four arms. Their faces are in great condition and there is some original gilding of the halos. The cross is elegantly decorated. The corpus has been separately applied with just a little wear to the features. The back is plain and smoothly finished.
The top ring bears the boar’s head for 800-900 silver. There is a bail attached for a chain.
This rare and quite lovely crucifix is in fine antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
