This beautiful amethyst paste cross pendant is stamped for ‘800’ silver . It is either French or German in origin and I am dating it to the early twentieth century circa 1920.
The cross is 2½” (6.3cms) long, including the top ring, by 1 and 5/8” (4cms). It weighs 9.4 grams.
The lines of delicately faceted amethyst pastes are set in silver. They are open backed for maximum light reflection. There are tiny, clear pastes all along the joins.
On the reverse towards the base is the mark ‘800’. There is a ring and a bail at the top.
The amethyst pastes are in remarkably good condition but a few of the tiny, clear pastes have darkened.
This beautiful piece will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
