Silvered 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 under 1” (0.96”) high including the loop. The crescent is nearly closed, of diamond section tapering from the middle. The crescent tips with matching bulbous terminals representing Sol the sun and Mani the moon. Especially crisp original condition with the pure silver overlay restored for contemporary wear. On an 18” modern sterling silver neck chain, gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
