Description

Vintage Necklace with assorted Tribal Chunky Brass Beads and a Pendant Coin Medallion Charm featuring St George on his horse, slaying the Dragon and backed with the Traveler's Talisman of the Boat scene representing Safety In the Storm.....

This very unusual vintage necklace is a blend of tribal and European elements.
The choker length necklace closes with a barrel clasp and is 16.75 inches total length with the largest brass beads at 0.75 x 0.5 inches. The pendant is just under 1.5 inches diameter.
The necklace is strung with an interesting assortment of chunky brass beads, of the kind frequently seen in tribal necklaces and very popular during the 60s-70s-80s Hippie-Bohemian aka BoHo period, and has an interesting attached coin medallion pendant.
There are beads of assorted shapes and sizes and patterns, varying from spherical to fluted, coiled, nuggets and filigree, all with washer type spacers in between.
The pendant looks like it may be pewter, and may be older than the necklace. The history of the scenes depicted on the pendant medallion are very interesting.

The front represents St George slaying the Dragon, and shows the Patron Saint of England in his armor, on his horse, and piercing the dragon with a lance. It is inscribed in Latin: "S.Georgius Equitum Patronus" which translates to Saint George Patron of Knights. This is a replica of a ducat coin from the middle ages, first minted in the 1500s for Count Von Mansfeld and known as the Mansfeld thaler.
About a century later, the theme of St George and the Dragon from the Mansfeld thaler become the front of a Talisman for sailors and travelers, with the addition of a scene on the back of a boat on a stormy sea, and the figure of Jesus Christ and a disciple, based on the story from Mark 4:36 when a violent storm arose on the Sea of Galilee while Jesus was asleep in the boat. When the terrified disciples woke Him, He said "Peace, be still!" and the storm immediately abated. The Latin inscription on this side of the medallion reads: "INTEMPESTATE SECURITAS" meaning security, or safety in the storm or tempest.
This scene is attributed to the Hungarian engraver Christian Hermann Roth during the 1600s.
Many sailors still carry replicas of this Talisman, especially the British, due to the obverse side with their Patron Saint. And these also became popular traveler charms.

Additional policies

My items are Vintage (20+ years) and so not new.
Normal wear is characteristic of vintage items. I attempt to describe items accurately and so any damage or obviously noticeable wear or flaws are clearly documented in my listing descriptions.

Glassware from the Art Deco-Depression era has characteristic air bubbles and what are known as "strawmarks". This is not considered damage, rather part of the documented manufacturing processes of that era.
Similarly, vintage handmade pottery, like jasperware, can have undulations, color variations and some minor pitting. This is a recognized part of the manufacturing process and not damage.
