Copper alloy with traces of gilding

Crucifix. Flat straight-armed crucifix with an apical loop for suspension. Both sides bear motifs in stamped low relief. On one side is the crucified Christ, draped at the waist and haloed, with scroll above. The other side bears the motif of a rayed Eucharistic host and chalice, and the legend THY / KING / DOM /COME - from the Lord's Prayer - with one syllable on each of the four arms of the cross.

The emphasis on the Eucharist and the kingship of Christ would probably make this a Roman Catholic or High Anglican piece; as Catholic devotion only became legal again in the 19th century a modern date is indicated. Suggested date: Modern, 1850-1950.

Height: 44.2mm, Width: 26.2mm, Thickness: 1.8mm, Weight: 4.68gms.

Inscription: THY / KING / DOM /COME
