ANCIENT VIKING LUNAR/ASTROLOGICAL PENDANT NECKLACE C.900-1000 AD
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 over 3/4” high, fashioned as the crescent moon with the tips expanded representing Sol the sun and Mani the moon. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored and mounted on a modern gilt neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
