Renaissance Silver Devotional Pendant of Crucifixion / Hospitallers
This is a nice Renaissance silver devotional pendant, dating to the 15th - 16th century. It is a double sided example, with one face representing the Crucifixion, the other displaying a large Maltese Cross (badge of the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem "Hospitallers"). The cross appears to be set with white enamel. The pendant is intact with the original suspension loop so can still be worn again today. It is a great looking piece in good venerated condition.
