This solid silver modernist crucifix is French. It bears the French crab hallmark for 800-900 silver quality. I believe it dates to the mid 20th century.
The crucifix measures 2 and 11/16” (6.8cms), including the ring, by 2 and 1/16” (5.3cms) across. It weighs 27.6 grams so is very substantial.
The figure of Christ is most exquisitely sculpted with great attention to detail . The cross itself is delicately stippled.
At the top is a squared off ring which bears the crab and a diamond shaped maker’s mark. There is a solid bail attached.
The reverse is plain for an engraving if you wish.
In fine vintage condition, this most beautiful crucifix will arrive in a gift box.
