Unknown cross

Recommended Posts

I've seen this one somewhere, but cannot recall the proper name for it.  Can anyone help?

Jeff, The centre appears to be the same if not similar to the Hafidien Order of Morocco - perhaps this is a compilation star as the Arabic should not be with a cross. The Arabic is not 199% but appears to read "Al Jalalah Al Yousfid'. Regards, Owain

Owain,

Thanks.  My leaky memory was pointing me toward a local issue from the Dutch Indies, so this sets me on a better path.

As the centre is a Moroccan it may be that an original Bertrand of Paris manufactured centre has been 'married' to the cross. The rim of the centerpiece is different from the rim of the cross. Is there a reverse image? Regards, Owain

The reverse is blank.

The marriage possibility is certainly viable. This came out a very large estate collection, so there's no way to go back through the previous collector.
