VERY LARGE ANTIQUE/VINTAGE GOLD METAL CROSS, Brass? Church, religious, Catholic
- Source: eBay UK
This auction is for a stunning v.large metal cross - It appears to be brass but am not 100% sure. It is old, I am not completely sure of the age either, but I was sold it as Victorian/early Edwardian.
CROSS MEASURES: 12 INCHES HIGH BY 8 INCHES WIDE APPROX.
It has gorgeous detailing and It is very good quality, has a bit of patina but is still shiny and displays beautifully, no matter how you wish to display it. Could probably polish up like brand new if desired but I liked it having a bit of age to it.
It has a little white residue here and there (in the lines etc. of the detailed parts) where someone previously has obviously polished it.
It has two holes in the centre, I took a picture close up of how they look from the back etc. There is also a hole at the top, There is a bit of ribbon left there from when I had it hanging up (had to have a strong nail to hold it!)
I believe it came off of maybe a door or could have been part of a larger piece. Whatever it's original purpose it is beautiful indeed and a lovely piece of history
