This beautiful, gilt metal and enamel cross bears no marks but if I had to guess I would say it was Italian.
The cross measures 3 and 11/16” (9.3cms) long by 1 and 13/16” (4.6cms).
At the top is a pierced bail with a decorative pierced roundel. A similar, pierced design is present on raised elements on the arms. In the centre is a gently rounded enamel plaque. Against a gleaming black background is a charming daisy and buds with green leaves. It is really exquisite!
The back is plainly finished.
The gilt finish is more or less intact on the front but worn on the back. The enamel is in perfect condition.
This very rare and lovely cross will arrive in a gift box.
