This large , Victorian cross is French. It is made of silvered metal and amethyst paste stones.
It measures 3 and 3/8” (8.7cms) long, including the bail by 2” (5cms) across.
At the top is a pretty bail decorated with a little flower and a gold knob centre. There are six claw set faceted, amethyst pastes. The colour has been difficult to capture as it looks different according to the light. The settings are pierced and ornamented with engraved ivy leaves.
The reverse is nicely finished and you will note that the pastes are open backed for maximum reflection.
This delightful cross is in fine antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
