ANCIENT VIKING LUNAR/ASTROLOGICAL PENDANT C.850-950 AD.
Silvered bronze. Over 1 1/4” high. Scalloped edge crescent enclosing another smaller. Perhaps representing an eclipse which was an act of the Gods. Made by the open face mold method. Vikings relied on astronomy to navigate and the heavenly bodies had supernatural significance. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored on a modern sterling silver chain. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
