Ornate Vintage Cini Floral Cross with Cherubs
* * SOLD * *
A vintage pendant, hand-carved in a neo-renaissance style, and cast in sterling silver. This large, ornate, filigree cross is decorated with six flowers and attended by two cherubs— the flowers form a cross within the cross. This is a Cini pendant— the backside of the cross is carved with great detail, just like the front. The carving has the wonderful rustic texture and fine detail Cini and their contemporaries are known for. Marked 'sterling;' the maker's mark would have appeared on a decorative bail. An unusual, dramatic cross, this will wear well on a short ribbon choker, or on a long sterling chain.
Measures 74.17 x 51.25 mm. Thickness is 2.25 mm. Weight is 14 grams.
