Exceptional early English silver cross completely adorned with ivy leaves. Has a wonderful presence. Not too bold yet not wimpy. Quietly decorated with ivy leaves from top to bottom and side to side.
Victorians believed ivy meant everlasting love. Each piece was custom made and thus this cross was most likely given as a show of love or a wedding present. This is only the third early English cross we have seen, and this is the largest of the three. This is a very unusual form as most custom made pieces were lockets. See our other items for lockets from the same period.
