Handmade, cast from bronze or similar copper alloy. Similar objects are often called "Viking" crosses and are dated c.10th-13th century (according to the available literature). Well preserved solid necklace bale/loop. Good antique condition, slightly bent, scratched and worn out likely due to age and devotional wearing, has beautiful, original green patina from the past centuries. The size of the pendant is shown on the photographs for this listing. Authentic ancient symbol of Christian faith. The ends of the crossbars are "budded", with shapes of three ovals, or "buds" each. In a Christian context, such a design could symbolically represent the Holy Trinity, similarly to the three-leaved clover, or Shamrock. The style of the pendant is similar to the early "budded" cross of Celtic or Northern European (Scandinavian) origin. Similar crosses are often described as 10-11th century "Viking" crosses. Such crosses traveled across Europe during the Viking Age, a period of Nordic military, mercantile and demographic expansion reaching the Byzantine Empire, France, Italy, Baltic nations and Ancient Russia (Rus).
