2 Victorian vulcanite crosses. Vulcanite is a type of vulcanized rubber formed by combining sulphur and Indian rubber. It is an imitation of Whitby jet used widely in the Victorian era. Charles Goodyear is credited with developing the process, which he patented in 1844. It is a fairly lightweight substance.

Together with a sterling silver antique Edwardian cross, makers Crisford & Norris, Birmingham 1910. (It has 2 slight dents, please see photos.)

Plus a selection of antique watch chains and T-bars, all  fully hallmarked, although some rather worn. 

Chain measuring 16" in length + 8" drop before with the crosses. Vulcanite crosses measuring 70mm & 40mm in length. Silver cross measuring 45mm in length.
There are some light surface scratches and slight patina, to be expected on antique silver items which have been carefully used and well cared for. The necklace is not made from a brand new pieces of silver, any scratches and signs of wear adds to it's character ;-)
