HFMC8

Approximate Overall Height: 10" 

Hand forged, this beautiful and large metal cross is one of only a few that we were able to procure. Each slightly different than the other, there is a wonderful soul to each of these stunning open fretwork metal crosses. Highly detailed on the front only, the cross measures just over four inches tall, nearly twice the size of our incredibly popular pewter antediluvian rosary crosses. This antique paean to Christ, was likely the effort of an amateur metal smith, but the tremendous overall presence of this stunning cross couldn't be more perfect for the rough/luxe mix that we have established with our handmade cross bottles here at Cross Bottle Guy.

Distinctive. Rare. Evocative. 

Forever married to a beautifully hazy, antique bottle with a beautifully dappled interior, this unique piece is finished in our signature mercerized rust patina.
