This is a unique cross from Ethiopia. It is hinged and follows the style of the Gurage region. It is worked in filigree with overlaid domes. The top part is connected to the cross with a hinge. It is made of metal and has the remains of a gold hue, perhaps from a previous gold gilt.
The pendant is in good vintage condition. Length is 9.5 cm (3 3/4") with bail and width is 6 cm (2 1/2"). Weight is 25 g.
