    Nice! The collectors term for this is 'Vaulted'.

    Some were vaulted at production stage and some were hand vaulted by the recipient so it would fit more snugly on the tunic

    Ditto (with a vengeance!)

    The 'vaulted' ones are special and look great IMO.

    Not having taken on the experiment myself (Im not THAT mad), I wonder how pliable they were/are.
    A downer to suddenly have been too eager in the bending/curving process - OUCH!

    Without having an iota of knowledge about how to go about putting a vaulted shape to one of these, I assume they put it on a curved shape or maybe did it freehand.

    Further more, the trick must have been to to apply the pressure a bit away from the center where the 'arms' of the cross meet, so as not to put too much of a strain on that spot.

    I understand but this piece is pretty normal there is no pressure on flexion
    I bought it when I saw

    I've seen a lot of ugly piece exaggerated curve
