A superb antique Scottish pebble cross pendant from the latter Victorian era, c1890! Made of sterling silver the cross is decorated with a combination of agate and jasper stones. The fancy-shaped cross has quartrefoil top and ends, with an oval-shaped centre. The vibrant colored stones, which vary in shape, include burnt orange jasper, dark green bloodstone and banded greyish blue Montrose agate which is sourced from Scotland's Montrose coastline. The stone segments are all strategically placed into the design with a lovely hand-engraved pattern surrounding the stones. The reverse is smoothly polished, and an original good-sized tapered bail attaches to the top where a chain of your choice suspend from. No stamps are sighted to the piece, which is typical of 19th century Scottish pebble jewellery, however tests indicate sterling silver.
A special piece of Scottish history, perfect for any avid Scottish collector.
