It is an Antique Ebony & Brass Pectoral type Crucifix that were worn by various Clergy over the years. Approx. 5.5 x 2.75 inches, quite heavy, approx. 3.0 oz. We have seen the nickel toned ones, not very many in the yellow bronze tone. On the reverse stamped on the black wood - EBONY. Stamped on the lower end, on the side - GERMANY. Our jeweler cleaned it up a bit, and installed an approx. 27" cord. Jeweler noting that this type of Crucifix was perhaps cast in bronze, nickel plated, with Ebony inlays.
