Product Details

A glorious antique silver cross pendant made in France in the mid 19th Century. It’s encrusted with a dazzling array of old cut glass pastes across the front that have been foil-backed to increase their sparkle and mimic the beauty of diamonds.  

Paste is a heavy, transparent flint glass that has been used since ancient times to simulate the beauty of gemstones. The art of cutting paste takes expert craftsmanship and the highest quality stones are often able to replicate the cut, colour and sparkle of natural gems to near perfection. 

The cross has an ornate, open-work design with elegant, scrolling motifs curling from the end of each crossbar. It’s modelled in solid silver and has remained in excellent condition.
