MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education.

{19th Century French Cherub Cross Pendants}

This time I have for you two rare and unique 19th Century French Cherub Cross-Pendants. The unique feature is the four Cherubs; one on each end. They look just adorable and will make perfect pendants for use in many ways. Hung from a leather rope, linen-twine or a silk or velvet cord to embellish the Christmas Season. Or worn as a unique piece of jewelry. Hung with a special photograph, possibilities are endless and I leave that up to the ability of the new owner! As usual, available from my Zen Cart powered on line boutique: Mariette's Back to Basics, see below post. My previous 925 Gilded Silver Raphael Angel Pendant only did last four hours after posting here on Blogger. There is also only one of the lace-work Cherubs in the Acrylic Frame with Transparent Acrylic Bolts & Nuts left...
One is turned backwards and the Cherub Heads are two-sided as you see.
Both crosses are identical.
Have any of you ever seen such crosses with cherubs on all four ends?
Does any of you know more about its meaning?
Please let us know!
They measure 3.5" or 7.5cm in length.
More info on my website, see below.
Sold out...

  1. Mariette,
    Those cross pendants are gorgeous. The design is so unique. I love them!


  2. Liebe Mariette,
    ich lese deine Posts immer mit Interesse - zum Kommentieren jedes einzelnen reicht leider die Zeit nicht -

    die Kreuze sind wunderwunderschön - ich habe noch nie solch schöne Exemplare gesehen - die Bedeutung der Engel weiß ich leider nicht -

    vielleicht wirst du es noch erfahren -

    ich wünsche dir ganz viel Freude damit -

    ein schönes Wochenende und liebe Grüße - Ruth

  3. Wirklich schöne Kreuze!

    Ich wollte mich noch wg. Deines Hinweises bedanken. Mir war gar nicht bewusst, dass ich auf meinem Blog nirgends meine E-Mailadresse hinterlegt hatte.... *schäm*, ich habe es nachgeholt.

    LG Lea

  4. Good Day Mariette,

    Ooh, these crosses are gorgeous. I've NEVER seen anything like it before. I don't know the meaning of the cherubs, but I would love to know if you do find out. Very unique item!

    Also, I want to thank you for your loving comment on my blog post 'True Value', you encouraged me greatly! I was deeply touched by your words. I know it was a long post and I knew that genuine friends, caring friends, would take the time to read it all the way through. You my friend are at the top of the list.

    God be with you and bless you.

    Have a beautiful day. Love to you.... ♥ ♥ ♥ Kerrie xOx

  11. Dearest Mariette,
    Gorgeous crosses and I never heard of Cherubs. The lovely angels sure must enhance our knowledge♪♪♪
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

    1. Dearest Miyako san,

      Guess that the names of Angels; Cherubs and Putti are all the same. Even Cupid is one of the mysterious angels of the spirit life. But it speaks to all people and all religions and that already for thousands of years.
      Hugs to you dear friend,

  12. the crosses with cherubs/angels seems normal,but your crosses are unique ones,hard to find them surely.

    lots of love

  13. Liebste Mariette,
    heute mal in Deutsch :O)
    Die Kreuze sind wunderschön! .........
    Ich wünsche Dir einen wunderschönen Herbsttag !
    ♥ Allerliebste Grüße Claudia ♥


Thanks for your visit and comment.
