Vintage Berber Silver and Enamel Cross


Wonderful vintage Berber Cross, made of old silver and decorated with enamel.  The work is quite striking, with small balls of silver decorating the piece.  This piece is definitely about displaying family wealth.  Berber families are traditionally nomadic, so Berbers often carry their wealth with them in the form of heavy silver jewelry.  This is a nice heavy piece -- lots of silver here!  

The pendant measures approximately 3 inches high x approximately 2 inches wide.  It weighs 69.8 grams.
