This is a solid silver crucifix that is 6 inches long, and 5 inches across; it weighs 178 grams. These pieces were made many years ago in South America from melted Spanish silver coins, by local indigenous silversmith using the most primitive of methods and their own formulas in smelting the silver alloy. The production of finished goods was illegal in the Spanish Colonies until 1810; when finished goods were made before 1810, they were madeclandestinely, withouthallmarks. Wewill provide the provenance of this cross to the winning buyer, upon request.
fewer remain today as most have been melted down; this one is from one of the convents we work with in South America and once belonged to a Bishop of the Church; the one in the pictures.
