space The French have a 99-year lease to their grave sites.  At the end of that lease, the crosses are removed and the families contacted.  If the crosses aren't claimed within three years, the crosses are sold. These antique markers are solid wrought iron.  Their beautiful designs reference the flora and fauna of nature as well as Biblical scripture. They are a lovely and meaningful piece that will surely become a keepsake in your own home. Vicky acquired a number of these beautiful crosses on her last trip to France.  They are in a variety of shapes and sizes and are priced  between $295 - $395. Some of our customers have displayed them in the foyer of their homes.  Others have put them on fireplace mantles or over headboards in their bedrooms.  Still others have placed them in their garden. The beauty of these antique crosses speaks on many different levels. Each is truly one-of-a-kind.  Our supply is limited, so stop in soon to see the collection. space
