German Medieval Reliquary cross
This is a copy of a gilded silver 15thc German cross from the V and A collection, the garnets may represent the blood of Christ and the Pearls are symbolic of purity. The back is engraved with five roundels depicting the instruments of the passion: the nails, lance, scourge, sponge and what may be a rope.
This cross is hollow and made up of two parts, unfortunately it can't be left open. Available in Gilded brass, Silver and Gilded Silver. Some of the photographs show a rose cut garnet in the centre. I can no longer get these, so all of the stones are round cabachon cut.
5.4cm high x 7mm thick.
