Large Medieval Heraldic Horse Harness Pendant with Arms of Castille

14th-15th century AD

A substantial bronze quatrefoil pendant with pierced suspension lug, spiked knop between each pair of lobes; reserved cross on a red enamelled field with five castles each comprising a keep and gatehouse and two flanking towers. 54.6 grams, 68mm (2 3/4"). Fine condition.

Provenance
Property of a London gentleman; previously by descent from Seymour de Ricci (1881-1942); formerly in the Carl Dreyfus collection; by descent from his father Gustave Dreyfus (1837-1914).

Footnotes
The arms of Castille have been a yellow castle tower on a red field since the 12th century. On the union with Léon in the early 13th century after the death of King Alfonso IX (died in 1230), the castle has been shown quartered with a red crowned lion rampant on a white field on the royal arms.
