This French silver crucifix bears a crab hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. It is a souvenir of a visit to La Salette. I am dating the crucifix to circa 1910-1920.

Our Lady of La Salette is an apparition of Our Lady reported by two children, Maximin Giraud and Melanie Calvat, to have occurred at La Salette-Fallavaux, France in 1846. She confided to them secrets which were passed to the Pope in Rome and also warned them that the seventh day must be a day of rest and prayer.

It measures 2 ¾” (7cms) by 1½” (3.7cms) across. It weighs 8.2 grams.

The cross is plain silver with a chamfered edge. It has a matt finish. However the exquisitely sculpted corpus has a shine.

At the top is an incorporated ring and a larger bail. The ring bears the crab mark and a diamond shaped maker’s mark.
The reverse is plain but is inscribed ‘La Salette’.

This beautiful crucifix is in fine condition and will arrive in a gift box.
