This most lovely French crucifix is symbolic of the royalist cause in France in the late nineteenth century. I am told that the fleur de lis on a crucifix represents an allegiance to the old royalist regime. It is hallmarked for 800-900 silver quality.

This crucifix is 2” (5cms ) long and 1” (2.5cms) across. It weighs 4.3 grams.

At the centre of the cross is an elegant, raised star inscribed with ‘JHS’. At each corner is an exquisite fleur de lis. The delicately sculpted corpus has been separately applied.

At the top is a solid ring which carries the boar’s head hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. A bail for a chain is attached. On the back of the ring is a diamond shaped maker’s mark. Otherwise the back is blank.

This lovely crucifix, dating to the late Victorian period, is in fine antique condition and will arrive in a gift box.
