This lovely, French, crucifix is marked ‘Fix’, a mark founded in 1823 by the jeweller Savard with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat thickly gold filled jewellery. I am dating this crucifix to circa 1910-1920.
The crucifix measures 1 and 13/16” (4.6cms) long, including the top ring, and 1” (2.5cms) across.
The cross itself is plain with attractively bevelled ends. At the top is the scroll inscribed ‘INRI’. The delicately sculpted corpus is separately applied.
There is a ring and a bail at the top. The ring bears the mark ‘FIX’ and the maker’s mark. The back is plain,
In excellent vintage condition , this beautiful crucifix will arrive in a gift box
