A rather wonderful antique Victorian cross pendant is beautifully detailed, crafted as two interconnecting tree branches with vines of gold ivy against a frosted and textured background.
The clinging ivy symbolised deep devotion and loyalty to the Victorians so wearing this grand sized cross would have made quite a statement about the lady's devotion to God.
Made from gold plated brass the cross is a large size and it has a generous oval bale which will accommodate thick chains and it looks lovely on a simple black ribbon. Despite being hollow it is fairly heavy for size. Condition is very, very good with expected signs of age and some age related tarnish, please see photos.
A truly lovely and distinctive antique pendant, iconic of the Victorian era.
