The St. George and the Dragon legend has been around for centuries and has been captured in many paintings as well as jewelry such as this lovely piece. With colorful enamel, the brooch depicts St. George on horseback slaying the dragon. Please see the detail section for additional photographs.
Because until recently I have seen only one similar brooch I found it a challenge to find the same kind of brooch to match my pendant (already some years in my possession and on CW see http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/93313-austro-hungarian-antique-enameled-st-ge).
That's finally done and let me see you here.
Austro Hungarian St. George slaying dragon silver enameled brooch surrounded by a row of stones which I think it is paste as usual in that Georgian period of time.
There are some wear spots in the enamel, but all the stones are present, the brooch fits well and has a diameter of about 3 cm.

    the enamel quality is wonderful!! are there any marks?
  15. Agram.m Agram.m, 3 years ago
    BelleEpoque thank you for your interest and love. I think to see two marks, but very unclear although the most left could be a head of some animal. I cannot decode so tiny even on the photo I show made under a magnifier.

    I think it is the dog's head for Austria Hungary, shame the other mark is not legible.
    But I am sure is by a good maker.
  17. Agram.m Agram.m, 3 years ago
    BelleEpoque thanks for your valuable comment. You are right it's a pity I cannot decode the second mark.
