This lovely, French, crucifix is marked ‘Fix’, a mark founded in 1823 by the jeweller Savard with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat thickly gold filled jewellery. I am dating this crucifix to circa 1910-1920.
The crucifix measures 1½” (3.8cms) long, including the top ring, and 13/16” (2.1cms) across.
The cross itself is plain with attractively bevelled ends. At the top is the scroll inscribed ‘INRI’. The delicately sculpted corpus is separately applied.
There is a ring and a bail at the top. The ring bears the mark ‘FIX’ and the maker’s mark. The back is plain.
In excellent vintage condition , this beautiful crucifix will arrive in a gift box
