Ethiopian Coptic Cross, hand held

A small hand held, double ended, Ethiopian Coptic Christian Cross, of dull silvery “tinned” pierced and cut brass.
I saw a doco the other day, where Ethiopian Pilgrims kissed a cross like this, when it was held out to them, in blessing, by a Priest.

Classic Ethiopian Cross, “primitive” in it’s form, often they are mistaken for Celtic, but not this one, simple in it’s drilling and filing style, you could with ingenuity wear it on a cord, as a pendant.

Age: Early/Mid 20 th century.

Size: L 188mm x W 36mm
