Description

A tall decorative double sided cast iron cross, found in many French grave yards in various styles and sizes.
Most date from late Victorian times, this one is from around 1870.
This cross is a favourite of mine, full of symbolism and meaning.
An intricate cast, the top, base and arms of the cross are decorated with twining leaves, fleurs de Lys upright and upside down, heart shapes and oak leaves, spears etc..
The centre plaque is taken up with a figure of the crucified Jesus, in a kind of understated style.
The cross is double sided, identical on both sides, the condition of the cast is good, apart from Jesus being a bit more worn on one side.
Generally solid but rusty, no paint remains.
A distinctive piece of French cast iron art, most decorative for house or garden.
