Handmade Cross Plate Made With Brass and Stainless | Vietnam, 20C


Catholic history in Vietnam is dates back to the 17th century, and missionary Alexander de Lord, who spread Catholicism, is also known for devising the present Vietnamese alphabet. Under the French coronial time of the 19th century, Christianity was defended, but after World War II, many Christians from North Vietnam moved to Saigon, South Vietnam, under persecution from Socialist Vietnam.

At present, religion is nominally denied in socialist states, but in fact freedom of religion is recognized. This cross would be made by people’s hands using scrap metal in wartime or soon after the war.

It is self-standing, but has adhesive marks at the joint of the stand.
