ANTIQUE ETHIOPIAN SILVER CROSS

Antique Coptic silver cross from Ethiopia.

In the 19th century, the Maria Theresa silver Thaler coin became the Ethiopian national currency.

The jewellers would melt them down to make silver crosses.

This cross demonstrates the freedom the artisans had in their creativity and the individuality of their work.

A stunning piece with a beautiful engraving on both sides.
