This beautiful cross pendant is made of 18 carat gold filled metal. It is signed ‘Murat’, established in Paris in 1847 and still going strong today. I believe that this cross is vintage rather than antique. It looks as if it hasn’t been much worn.
The cross measures 1 and 3/8” (3.5cms) long, including the ring, by ¾” (1.9cms) across.
The cross is yellow gold filled, embellished with tiny raised dots. The edges are finished with a thin raised layer of white gold with parallel engraved lines.
At the top is a ring marked ‘MURAT’ and a bail to hold a chain. The back is plain shiny gold.
In view of its excellent condition, I am wondering if it is ‘new old stock’ from a shop that closed down. It will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
