Circular amulet inscribed with the Lorraine cross in a circular surround. A simple line cross with curved “crutches” to the beam terminals forming five crosses in one. The form, size, and workmanship are specifically related to the Crusader’s crosses bearing the Jerusalem cross in honor of Godfrey of Bouillon, a Frankish Knight of the First Crusade, known as Baron of the Holy Sepulcher and the Crusader King, ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem following its victorious siege in the First Crusade. It follows, then that this is a variation of the Crusader’s cross, worn by a crusader more than 1000 years ago. Silvered bronze, 0.55” (over ½”) diameter. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver surface restored on a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
