Cross pendant one-side with Christ at the center of a full Latin cross decorated with openwork and filigree. Shells at the ends of the Saint André cross. This type of cross is part of adornment of wealthy wives along the coast between Boulogne and Dunkirk. They are typical by their shells motifs that evokes the pilgrimage to Saint Jacques de Compostelle and the filigree work is perhaps the mark of a distant Spanish origin. The Country of Flanders became Spanish between the 15th and 17th centuries. The curly lines might also evoke twisted ropes wound on the bridge and the shell as product from fishing (bron: authenticiteitscertificaat).
