Antique celluloid Baptismal protector cross
Early 20th century antique cream coloured hollow celluloid cross, modelled to simulate ivory. This cross with the face of an angel would have been gifted to new born babies for Baptism and used by a Mother to protect her children, and she would hang the protector cross on the crib of the baby. There is a split to the rear of the cross as shown in the photo but this is not noticeable from the front.
