This beautiful French cross is marked ‘Fix’ and ‘Savard’. The Savard company founded in 1823 with a secret formula for this type of thickly gold filled jewellery.
The French are very familiar with the concept of elegant gold filled jewellery so thick that there are hardly ever signs of wear. The designs and quality are generally so good that they are hard to tell from their solid gold counterparts.
The cross measures 1½” (3.8cms) by 1” (2.5cms).
The arms, fanning outwards, have a design of exquisite raised leaves. The ends are delicately pierced. In the centre is a brightly twinkling paste.
The back is beautifully finished with grooves along the arms.
There is a ring at the top and a bail for a chain marked ‘FIX’ with a maker’s mark ‘Savard’.
In excellent vintage condition , this lovely cross will arrive in a gift box
