This beautiful, early Victorian, possibly late Georgian. cross is made of gilt brass and embellished with cut steels.
It measures 2 and 7/8” (7.5cms) long, including the small ring at the top, by 2¼” (5.7cms). It weighs 14.4 grams.
The arms of the pierced cross and embellished by decorative swirls, each finished with a faceted cut steel. At the centre is an engraved steel flower. At the top is a ring to which a larger bail is attached.
On the back the gilt has worn away. There are also cut steels on the points and one in the centre.
The top of the cross is a little wobbly. If you look closely you will see that it has been repaired.
So here is a very old antique cross with signs of age and use. I have adjusted my price accordingly. It is nevertheless very beautiful. It will arrive in a gift box
