Medieval Enamelled Harness Pendant Duke of Burgundy

Code: 10802

SOLD

This is a nice medieval heraldic harness pendant, dating to the 13th - 14th century A.D. It is enamelled with the armorial of the Duke of Burgundy (bendy or and azure, a bordure gules). Such a pendant would have been worn on the harness and horse trappings, of retained knights in the service of the Duke - sometimes by the Duke himself, in tournaments or battle.

This example has survived in good condition, still with much of the original enamel and gilding remaining.
