FINE MEDIEVAL WOMAN’S PENDANT NECKLACE C.10th-12th CENTURY
Gilt bronze, over 1/2" height (plus the suspension loop), of circular form with eight radial leaf shaped members, references to fertility, rebirth, and abundance. The form is derived from the earlier Roman Wheel of Fortune, which carried on through the Medieval period, sometimes in interpretative forms as here. Professionally refurbished with the heavy gold overlay restored and mounted on a modern gilt neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
