Large and unique silverplated fine Coptic processional cross of Mary from Ethiopia.

This rare Cross belongs to the group of processional crosses which accompanies each procession of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. It has a hollow shaft for mounting on a wooden handle, so that it can be carried above the heads of people in processions and religous ceremonies. The two lower arms are made for the hanging of the cloth which accompanies the Cross when it is carried by the deacons. The cloth reminds on Christ’s dresses. The Cross is handcraftet by the lost-wax method, so that it is unique.

Authentic, fine cross with minor signs of use. The construction is steady. The foot is a little bit oneven. Therefore the cross has some trouble standing on its own. As you can see in the photo’s it can stand without support, but it is a bit wobbly.

The back of the cross has some small damage. Also the left side of the cross has some minor damage.

Provenance leads to a local tradesman in Ethiopia.
Material: an aloy of silver and nickel.
