This large, French , Victorian mission crucifix is made of brass.
It measures 3 and 3/16” (8.2cms) long by 2 and 1/8” (5.4cms). It weighs 17.8 grams.
The separately applied corpus is exquisitely modelled and thrown into relief against a plain background.. Near the top is a cartouche with ‘INRI’.
On three arm ends are trios of angel’s heads with little wings. At the top there are two angels and a hole at the top with a cloud effect. There is a bail attached for a chain.
The reverse is inscribed ‘Souvenir de Mission’. There are three little ‘sun’ motifs.
This lovely, antique crucifix would be ideal to hang on a wall. It is in fine antique condition and will arrive in a gift box.
