About

Weightless Antique GeorgianSilesian Wirework Cross c .1800 is woven by hand of fine iron. Delicate and textured the spiky details and central flower forms worked by the jeweler are impossible to peel away the answer as to how his or her hands could weave such a fine jewel. There is no more weight than a butterfly wing and as much of a miracle. Made in Germany at the same time Berlin Iron was made. It is an extremely rare piece of jewelry and world history. Excellent Condition
