VIKING LUNAR/ASTROLOGICAL PENDANT 850-1050 AD

placeholder
Lot 0081
Gilt bronze. Slightly over ½” width-charm size. Simple broad crescent suggesting that it was made on a voyage. Vikings were expert metallurgists and known to have smelted bog iron when exploring North America. This amulet was likely made on voyage to replace one lost. It would have been recast from another bronze item of less significance or perhaps damaged. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and supernatural power to Vikings. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belt. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored. Item ships one business day after payment.
