This cross is a marriage of three earlier elements which may have been assembled in the 19th century or later. Whereas the ornamental decoration and enamel colours of the frame are late 16th century, the backplate with its symmetrical ornament with crossed lines in combination with birds, rosettes and lions is typical of the early 18th century.
