LARGE PROCESSIONAL CROSS 326
27.25" high x 20.75" wide x 2.75" deep
This cross has been mounted on a wooden staff (as it would have been carried), then fastened to a metal base for stability. It stood on its own, but could be knocked over. The base is included in the price. Although a very large cross and finely made, there is some discoloration in the silver plating. One side has additional cast or incised lines running through the middle of most of the forms. See details below.
