This exquisite French cross depicts Mary and 4 sweet faced angels highly detailed in Champlevé enamel.
The front of the cross is completely covered in enamel and engraving, the back of the cross is gilded in gold, they did this to keep the silver from tarnishing and getting on the wearers clothes.
The cross is hallmarked on the top ring with the boars head for 800 silver, and has 2 small touch marks, likely the maker marks. The chain is handmade and silver, but has no hallmarks that I can find.
