The story be behind the English folklore is that St. George slew the mighty dragon. According to legend, a pagan town in Libya was being terrorized by a dragon. The locals kept throwing sheep to it to placate it, and when it still remained unsatisfied, they started sacrificing some of the citizenry. Finally, the local princess Sabra, daughter of the King, was to be thrown also to the beast, but good St. George came along, slaughtered the dragon and rescued the fair princess. At this, the townsfolk converted to Christianity. Some experts think the tale is based on the Greek myth of Perseus rescuing Andromeda from a sea monster.

 

Back in the 1800’s, Austria-Hungary established itself as a maker of top quality jewellery. Workshops in Austria-Hungary crafted the majority of these Renaissance and Gothic Revival pieces between 1860 and 1910. This highly collectable 3D pendant is skillfully made with colourful enamelling. It is as beautifully detailed on the reverse as it is on the front the enamelling is a work of art! The pendant is attached via two sections of belcher link chain to a jump ring fitting and measures 30 x 42mm (60 mm with chain).

 

In brilliant condition, all stones present and virtually all enamel present (please see photos for more details). This is an exception piece with so many more variants of enamel colours than other examples.
