Story

Straight from the personal collection of our owner, this silver pendant is in the shape of the French Croix de St. Lô. King Louis XI is said to consistently carry a piece of the Cross of St. Lô with him. The name is derived from the church of St. Lô where the relic was housed.

Large in size, silver open work forms the overall structure for the two-part pendant. The upper portion is a stylized cross with a lozenge shape. Branches of decorative scroll work are dotted with small round black dot pastes as four (4) large pastes set in conical mounts (rub-over bezels) appoint the surface.

Delicately suspended is a pear shaped open work element similar in appearance to the upper section accented with a tear drop black dot paste set in a teardrop shaped rub-over bezel. All of the pastes are set closed back and display the bulbous convex shape typical of the era.

From the private collection of the owner, purchased in London in 2001.
