VIKING LUNAR PENDANT C.900-1000 AD.
7/8" total height. Fine crescent form. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. The Moon was personified as Mani, brother to Sol the Sun, and is abundantly represented in Norse literature. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing, and horse harnesses. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored, on an 18” modern gilt Sterling silver neck chain and jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Nice elegant proportions.
