French Cross of Lorraine Locket Pendant
Antique French Cross of Lorraine locket with a high relief depiction of the cross and thistle on both sides. Thistle represents bravery, devotion, durability, strength and determination. The Cross of Lorraine is often associated with Saint Joan of Arc, who was from Lorraine. After the incorporation of a great part of Lorraine to Germany following the 1870 war, the Cross of Lorraine became a symbol of memory and resistance.
The locket is hinged at the bottom and has a snap closure at the top.
