Übergroß EK2?

Article about: Just to clarify, the Deschler crosses are seperate from the Ubergrosses crosses, I posted the latter for reference only. The only maker who set their suspension rings in a drilled out indent

    Default Übergroß EK2?

    Slowly getting back into TR crosses a bit. Picked this EK2 up recently because it looked bigger than a normal sized EK2. Could this be an Übergroß? It is unmarked, three piece and magnetic. The beading and swastica are bigger and the frames are thicker than a normal EK2. Im not familiar with the different types of Übergroß crosses so your help and info are much appreciatedClick image for larger version.

    Thanks for the helpful link Ingrid It will take me a while to memorize all this info but now I know I have a cool and hefty cross

    Thanks Nick for helping confirm this as a Deschler I looked for an example of this cross in the EK database and when I didnt find a match I thought this was an Übergroß for sure, never seeing one in person.

    Are these oversize Deschler crosses the only ones that have the free moving suspension ring mount? William

    Hi William,
    Deschler crosses don't have a free moving suspension ring. This maker is the only one that sets the ring in a large recess, it is soldered into place and doesn't move. It does appear like it should but it doesn't.

    There's a link here to a thread which shows the different size of an Ubergrosse cross compared to standard and Schinkel crosses. Please also see the pic below.......

    Hello Adrian, They are, indeed, most unusual in any case! Your ring seems to have a slight starboard lean to it, so it kind of made it look like it was lying loose. In the second photo on leej11's cross-the one of the 1813 side, the suspension ring seems to almost sit in a drilled out indentation! I noticed in the photos of your own another difference also that I was wondering about. Is it uncommon to see the little humpback on the rim inside the ring such as this one has? You really Do learn something new everyday,I guess! lol But very interesting crosses, for sure! William
