This Coptic hand cross is both beautiful and unique... the shape and overall look of these items can range from very simple to quite ornate. This particular piece has a square top with four arms which together form a larger cross. The base is rectangular and has engraved designs on both sides. Pieces like this typically originate in Ethiopia, but we found this one in Italy on our most recent sourcing trip there.
Measures 7.75"H x 3"W x 0.25"D. Some light surface wear and patina.
