Gilt bronze. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing and horse harnesses. This example is just over ½” (0.54”) wide, of unusual, thick section of three crescents superimposed, with curled terminals representing Sol the sun and Mani the moon. The form represents an astrological event, perhaps an eclipse which the Vikings could not explain and found to be terrifying. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored, on an 18” gilt neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
