VIKING LATTICE PENDANT
Silvered bronze. 850-1050 AD. Known to represent “sown fields” and perhaps worn for festivities when that Spring activity was complete. Diamond form with dimpled nubs at the corners and 4 x 4 lattice piercing representing a particularly difficult challenge of the bronze casting process. 1 1/4” height. Excellent with the silver overlay restored, on a modern sterling silver chain.
