$ 640.00

This intricately engraved silver square cross is a striking piece of Victorian history. A recognition of excellence, Rosa Tasker distinguished herself within the context of religious education and demonstrated exemplary behavior, worthy of recognition by St. Anthony's Church in Leeds. These details not only provide a glimpse into the social and religious practices of the Victorian era but also imbue the cross with a sense of personal history and significance. As a piece of jewelry, it is timeless in its beauty and versatility.

Crafted in the 1870s, this cross features exquisite engraving work, showcasing a variety of delicate patterns. Turning to the back, maintaining the same level of craftsmanship and detail, one finds a series of inscriptions that offer insight into the cross's history and purpose. The dedication reads: "Presented to Rosa Tasker for proficiency in religious knowledge and good conduct." Further inscriptions denote the occasion: "Whitsuntide 1874," and "Sunday Schools, Leeds," where Rosa's achievements were acknowledged. Measuring 59x40.8 mm and weighing 24 grams, its substantial presence reflects the significance of the occasion it commemorates.

Dear Rosa, thank you for your goodness. And thank you to St. Anthony’s Church for rewarding her with such a beautiful cross! It continues to inspire and uplift those who come into contact with its timeless beauty and symbolism.
