LARGE MEDIEVAL CROSS NECKLACE, 12th-13th CENTURY
1 1/8” height. Cylindrical beams with ball finials. The cross beam centered and a saltire at the junction. A heavy cross as this would have been carried by a priest, or perhaps a nun, but definitely a member of the clergy. Fine character. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay and mounted on a modern gilt neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
