Superb 5" ROME Micro Mosaic Pendant Crucifix - Chrome Plated Surround Tesselate Orthodox Cross - Hanging Pendant Loop - RC109
This is a large Micro Mosaic Pendant Crucifix that we found during our travels around France. A very well made, Tesselate Cross Pendant Crucifix of bright Chromed metal, made in Rome in Italy in the 1900s. We bought this crucifix in a little local antiques market where it was being sold by a dealer on behalf of the family to whom it had belonged. A very stylish chromed crucifix embellished with beautiful multi-coloured Italian "Millefiori" miniature glasswork, the figure of Christ is finely detailed in metal. The cross itself is entirely smooth on the back; showing just the single pin attaching the figure of Christ. This could be worn as a large, striking pendant or affixed to a wall - there is a loop incorporated at the top of the cross, but there is no chain with it. On the front, the figure of Christ is surrounded by Micro Mosaic in blue, red and white in floral and tool shapes; the Dove of Peace is above his head and a hammer and chisel further up; at His wrists there is a ladder and a pair of measuring callipers; below His feet, the tiny mosaics spell "ROMA" and small flowers adorn the rest of the background.
With a magnifying glass, this is like looking at an adventure!
The crucifix measures 5" or 13cm tall (excluding the loop) by 2.5" or 6cm wide and could be worn with a strong chain, or affixed to a wall.
