Gothic Revival Cross by Robert Phillips

Curated By: Joanna Hardy
Main Material: Gold
Period: 19th Century
Condition Report: Pristine Condition
A magnificent cross pendant made by Robert Phillips. Robert Phillips was one of the most sought-after revivalist jewellers of the nineteenth century. This stunning and important piece features meticulous detail and craftsmanship: the ornate design echoes crosses seen in Medieval paintings and decorating Medieval reliquaries. Phillips' work can be seen in the permanent collections of museums such as The British Museum, The Ashmolean, and The Fitzwilliam. This piece features a cross made from banded agate, the white bands lining up in perfect symmetry. The agate catches the light beautifully and has an enchanting glow to it. Surrounding the cross is a plethora of ornate openwork gold decorations, all featuring typically Gothic style pointed motifs. This stunning piece is a remarkable example of Phillips' craftsmanship and of gothic revival style. It was previously owned by David Ormsby-Gore, Lord Harlech.
Joanna Hardy says: “This is a spectacular pendant; the attention to detail is exceptional. The sardonyx has been gold foiled behind and the translucency has made it look garnet-like in colour – a rich, fiery colour – and the bands perfectly match. The pendant is quite extraordinary and so too is its original box, which is also a work of art. The box opens from one side of its rhombic shape; I’ve never seen a case like this and it is of exceptional quality. Fabulous, and certainly a statement jewel; you certainly do not need to be religious to wear this, in my opinion.”
