COMMENTS: Circa 1980’s. This bar pendant depicts lardy Fortuna inside an ornate bezel. Fortuna (Latin: Fortūna, equivalent to the Greek goddess Tyche) was the goddess of fortune and the personification of luck in Roman religion. Fortuna is often depicted with a gubernaculum (ship’s rudder), a ball or Rota Fortunae (wheel of fortune) and a cornucopia (horn of plenty). The reverse side of the coin has all the typical Suisse bar markings. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Items will be cleaned but natural patina will be preserved if applicable. Polishing to near new is always FREE upon request!
