The wood crucifix holds a Stanhope viewer (a microscopic viewer) containing a faded and barely visible image of the sanctuary. On the reverse, it is stamped “Souvenir de N.D. Laghet.”
Dimensions: 57” long; crucifix measures 3.5” l x 2” w
Condition is very good with all beads intact; small crack in heart-shaped medallion; image in Stanhope viewer is faded.
