With an art neuveau feel this pendant features scroll work framing a traditional cross with an elaborate spray of flowers (dogwood?). Both sides of the pendant are identical (or very similar) and placed together back-to-back for a three dimensional design fashion accessory. It appears to have been treated with something to make it appear antique, which is wearing down showing only the base metal. There may be some copper in the base metal as some verdigris is visible at the connection points along the seam.
Measures 5-1/5cm x 7-1/2cm (2"x3"). Does not include a chain.
