Vintage Silver Fierce Lion Head Pendant, Sheild Shaped

I’m actually pretty easy to appeal to when it comes to jewelry and adornments. Give me something striking, something that catches the eye, as long as it’s made well and made by hand, I’m always a bit intrigued. This great lion pendant just spoke to me, he has a regal look, like a miniature version of a shield that some great knight might have taken into battle! 

Hand crafted in acid tested 830 silver, this pendant is one of those rare beauties that defies my sense of dating. Surely he has some age as it shows some wear, but sometimes with unmarked items such as this, dating is difficult at best. I would think he was made before 1950, how much before, I couldn’t say, he could be from the 19th century just as easily. A wonderful lion head in full repousséd three-dimensional glory fronts a hammered shield with a silver ball crowning each corner. This larger sized pendant measures 56.5 mm high from the top of the bale and 39.5 mm across, it’s 8.8 mm deep and weighs 25.8 grams. 

On a silver chain or simple black cord, on a woman or a man, this fierce pendant is a conversations starter for sure, and that’s good enough for me!
