Medieval or Welsh Dragon Brooch
Medieval or Welsh Dragon Brooch

RJ409 - Medieval or Welsh Dragon Brooch. Solid Pewter 1.2" X 1.6" in size. Wonderfully Carved - This a very detailed dragon carved by James E. Boyle of The Rams Horn. It was hand cast in fine pewter and all the findings were hand soldered. This brooch was signed by the artist. The pin has a hinged pin and safety clasp. The animal called a dragon is like a winged crocodile with a serpent's tail; whence the words serpent and dragon are sometimes interchangeable. From the meaning a watcher we get the notion of one that watches; and from the meaning “to flash,” we connect the word with meteors. Swift, swift, ye dragons of the night:—that dawning May bare the raven's eye. The Greek word drakon comes from a verb meaning “to see,” to “look at,” and more remotely “to watch” and “to flash.” This dragon would love to flash for you and bring you luck.
