Medieval Crusader Silver Cross Pendant
This is a wonderful medieval silver cross pendant, dating to the 12th - 14th century A.D. The cross is shaped in the form of a cross-crosslet. It retains the original decorated suspension loop, though displaying heavy wear from active use over a period of time. This pendant would have been of great value for the weight of the silver and for whom it represents, worn as a mark of Crusade and by knights on pilgrimage.
