MEDIEVAL SCANDINAVIAN PENDANT NECKLACE
Post Viking, dating about 1200 AD. Form deriving directly from the earlier heart pendants with the pointed oval domed center as a heart in its anatomical form on a raised edge quatrefoil with nubs at the 1/8 and 5/8 points, remnants of the quartered and sixth point nubs on the earlier Viking versions. Stippled field. Silvered bronze, professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored. On a modern Sterling silver neck chain, gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
