    This wonderful Austro-Hungarian pendant is actually a Carnet de Bal, also called Ballspende or Dance Cards. These were a common ladies accessory in the ballroom dances of the 18-1900s. They contained paper or thin ivory sheets where the ladies could write the melodies and whom they danced with.
    This particular one is in revivalist style, imitating a coin or medal that was produced in Kremnitz, Hungary during the 16-19th centuries. It reads S. Georgicus Equitum Patronus, or “Saint George Patron of the Knights”. It is made of silver and plique-a-jour enamel in green, red, blue and purple. It really looks like a church stained glass window against the light.
    Marked with the Austrian dog’s head silver mark and G.A.S. for maker Georg Adam Scheid. Made in Vienna around 1900.

      Beautiful piece.
      Btw. Kremnitz or Kremnica is in Slovakia, regardless of Hungarian Kingdom at the time.The name is derived from Slovak word ``kreme?`` meaning flint. Rulers change but geographical names remain.

      ``kremen`` (a typo)
