An 18th Century Order Of Aviz Portuguese Paste Cross

Description

An 18th century Order of Aviz Portuguese paste cross, the star of the order an eight pointed faceted star in white paste and silver gilt reverse suspending green paste cross set with foil back step-cut green paste, with cardinal points, circa 1760, measuring approximately 11.5 x 5.7cm, gross weight 58.1grams, in original fitted case.

An arresting 18th century piece. This cross features sparkling green and white paste, magnificently arranged in the shape of the cross of the Order of Aviz. The Order of Aviz is a Portuguese order of chivalry that dates to 1146. This piece was made around 1760 and is an excellent example of the use of paste in 18th-century jewellery. The piece is wonderfully constructed: the paste is eye-catching and striking. A notable 20th century recipient of the cross of the Order of Aviz is Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl of Burma, the uncle of Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh.
