Gothic Processional Cross from the 14th century, Spanish, made in gilded coppers and embossed with Champlevé enamels.
The arms of the cross end in a tip and finish with curved shapes. The figure of Christ stands out in relief in the centre of the piece, his head rests on a square shape, decorated with incised engravings which are also distributed throughout the cross. On the head there are two enamelled plates with an inscription in red and blue shades, next to the arms and feet there are enamelled plates. An incised decoration runs all along the surface of the Cross. The reverse of the cross is also decorated with a central enamel of Jesus and incised decoration, which is why it is called a Processional Cross. It has two faces for the processions of the 14th century
Its measures are: 41 cm wide x 52 cm high x 8 cm deep and 3 kg in weight.
The Cross was authenticated, the report is available on request.
