This lovely , antique reliquary crucifix is French and is hallmarked for 800-900 quality silver. It is very lightly gilded. It dates to the mid nineteenth century. Unusually it is double sided with Jesus on the cross on one side and the Virgin Mary on the other.

It measures 2 and 3/16” (5.6cms) long, including the ring and screw, by 1¼” (3.2cms). It weighs 4.4 grams.

On the front is a finely sculpted, raised image of Jesus on the cross. The cross is delicately outlined.

The reverse is the same except that it carries an image of the Virgin Mary.

At the top is a ring with the crab mark for 800-900 silver quality. A bail is attached.

At the base is a screw. It unscrews easily to reveal an empty interior which once held a precious relic.

In fine antique condition, this rare piece will arrive in a gift box.
