Sterling and Enamel Cross on Chain, c. 1915
This American sterling silver and enamel cross with a scrolled-edge is conservatively dated; it could be older. The chain is original and made of flattened, rectangular links; there is no clasp. It tests definitively for silver. The vibrant green enamel decoration on the cross is intact, and bears the usual minor flaws of handwork. The cross itself is quite sturdy, and nicely molded, though there are two casting flaws at the lower right (see photo #6). The ring at the top, as well as the bail connecting the cross to the chain, show wear, and will eventually have to be reinforced. The cross measures just over 2 inches long, including the top ring, by 1 3/8 inches across. The entire necklace, with the chain doubled, measures 15 1/5 inches long. The back of the cross is marked sterling. Weight: 22.3 grams; the cross alone, about 12.6 grams.
