Seller: anaktisi_historia (130) 100%, Location: Fayetteville, Arkansas, Ships to: US, Europe, AU, Item: 253682227997 For your discerning consideration is an truly exceptional piece of history in good condition. This reliquary cross is a made of pure sliver, and is from the 12th Century time period. The piece measures 56 mm x 24 mm x 3 mm, and has been completely restored. The photos of what the piece looked like before the restoration is included with the rest of the photographs. I have also shown the piece in different lightings as well. Upon restoration, there was a very small piece that came unattached at the top where the latch opens and closes on the left side. I discovered however that the debris was so heavy in that area in addition the tarnish that built up over hundreds of years, it weakened it to the point where it came off. The piece is included. I don't like to leave out any pertinent information to buyers because I would expect that from anyone else; and it's the right thing to do. I could easily attach this back on but I would like to leave that decision up to the buyer. It can however be worn without it, as it stays put regardless. Also, I would like to add that the incredible detail that is on the front is extraordinary as one can see, and the reverse, although pitted a lot more, shows Jesus' face in the middle. This is difficult to do, even today by a modern jeweler, let alone someone back in the 1100's. That is what makes this piece special. A Sterling Silver chain will be included with the cross as well. It is 22 inches long and is 1/8 inches wide ( 55 cm x .03 cm ) Thanks for viewing the auction! ***NOTE*** All payments are due within 2 days of the auction ending.
