Antique Austro-Hungarian Pendant George Slaying the Dragon Silver Enamel

Renaissance Revival jewelry was en vogue during the 1800s all across Europe. Austria-Hungary established itself as a maker of quality jewelry during this time, as the pieces were not only detailed and beautiful on the front, but oftentimes equally detailed and ornate on the back. Workshops in Austria-Hungary crafted the majority of these Renaissance and Gothic Revival pieces between 1860 and 1910. Oftentimes, these pieces were made in silver and then gilded in gold. This antique St. George pendant is no exception as it was made around 1880 in Austria-Hungary, during the Victorian Era.

This handcrafted pendant shows St. George, the patron saint of England, heroically slaying a dragon. It also features 10 pearls on a silver link chain. All but one pearl is 2.5 mm in diameter, and the last is 3 mm in diameter. There no marks and it has been acid tested. Overall, this pendant is 68 x 33.2 x 11.5 mm and it weighs 23.0 grams.

This is a highly detailed pendant with bold colorful enamel, meant to be worn and seen! So go ahead, treat yourself.
