Russian Orthodox Bronze Cross with Crucifix.
3 Horizontal Bars
Bottom Bar Slanted to show
the upward slant for heaven
the downward slant for hell
This cross was very likely made for wearing
before the start of Communism in Russia.
The top bar has a shaft for a cord
to wear around the neck.
Old Iron Suspension Ring attached for hanging.
Through many years of handling
all the symbols are very well rubbed.
Thus leaving a beautiful patina
The cross has a minor casting flaw between
the second and third horizontal bar.
