This large Victorian cross is inlaid with gold leaf on darkened metal. It may be French but there are no marks to confirm this.
It measures 2 and 13/16” (7.2cms) long, including the ring, and is 1 and 15/16” (4.9cms) wide. It weighs 15.3 grams.
The shape is the traditional , Victorian gothic style. The double sided cross is delicately inlaid with flowing gold branches and tiny leaves. The design is natural with great movement and the black background throws into relief the glowing gold.
At the top is a ring and a bail to hold a chain.
The design is the same on what I would consider the back. However there is a dark area of gold loss near to the top. There is also a small area of loss at the base on the front but this is barely noticeable. Wear it on the front for the best look!
This beautiful and very rare cross will arrive in a gift box.
