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 under 1 1/4” high (1.21”) with a bulbous central column superimposed on the crescent moon, with a matching figure within the crescent, and matching bulbous terminals representing Sol the sun and Mani the moon. In addition to paying tribute to the astrological gods, the configuration likely had specific astrological significance, probably a planetary event, like a rare convergence. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. On an 18” modern gilt silver neck chain, jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Fine quality and condition.
