Silvered bronze, an extraordinary example 2 1/8" height with the cross beam centered and each beam expanding toward the ends. Broad low edges defining the cross within. That form was later modified to become the Maltese Cross of the Knights Hospitallers in the 16th century. The size and proportions of this example suggest that it was worn by a priest or knight of a religious order. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored on Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
