Art History

Byzantine

Careful study by our Objects Conservation Laboratory identified the varied techniques—gold filigree, granulation, and wire laid over sheets of gold—used to create the sophisticated interplay of patterns, light, and shadow on the front and back surfaces of the cross. Similar designs appear on earrings and other decorative works of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries from throughout the Late Byzantine sphere, especially Greece and the Balkans.

 

Description

Byzantine interest in elaborate small religious works made for personal adornment is clearly reflected in an elegant gold pectoral cross with pearls in the Museum’s collection. While its shape, with flared arms ending in roundels, is long known in Byzantium, the metalwork decoration relates the cross to the empire’s last centuries. Our adapted pendant cross is based on this pectoral original. 18K gold overlay, with cultured freshwater pearls. Imported. Lobster claw closure. Adjusts from 18”L to 20”L with extender chain; pendant: 1 1/4”L.
