Renaissance Revival was a popular style during the Victorian period. The majority of this jewelry was created between 1860 and 1910 in workshops in Austria-Hungary.
A wonderfully classic piece of Austro-Hungarian Jewelry featuring Saint George slaying the dragon, a popular theme in the Victorian period. Atop a background of flowers perches a 3-dimensional rendering of St. George on his horse piercing the dragon with a spear. The pendant/brooch is embellished with bezel set bright blue turquoises and pearls. On the back, there are 2 raised bars which are meant for a ribbon to slide thru so it can be worn as a pendant. One of the bars is hallmarked for Austria-Hungary 800 silver. The back of this piece is extensively decorated with hand engraving. The pin back is specially configured to fold down when not being worn as a brooch.
