Austro-Hungarian St. George & Dragon Necklace
Very fine Austro-Hungarian silver and enamel pendant necklace featuring St. George slaying the mythical dragon.
Cast in the round, the scene can therefore be viewed from either side and is a vivid and well detailed depiction of England’s Patron Saint astride his white charger with one arm aloft as he spears the beast.
The pendant is highlighted with enamelling in shades of blue, green, red and white and is also gilded in chosen areas.
Set on the face side with two cabochon stones that test as spinel and on the reverse with a faceted blue stone testing as topaz.
Suspended on a pair of short chains from a dedicated bale in matching green enamel and measuring 6.75 cm from this to the bottom of the pearl drop.
The necklace chain is approximately 48 cm long.
