One can’t help but smile when you see this fabulously cheeky “dancing pig” family crest seal. It likely hails from Ireland, where the symbol of a boar or pig features in many Irish noble families coats of arms. Notice the knight’s helmet atop a warrior’s shield, with a second, smaller dancing pig forming the family crest at the top.At first glance an odd yet amusing piece, however, the image of a boar in heraldry symbolizes bravery and one who fights ‘til the end. Aha! And now it makes sense, yes? The detail in the shield is amazing, complete with riveting around the edge as one would find in a proper knight’s shield. What was simply a funny seal on first glance, all makes sense when one realizes that this symbolizes the house of a brave knight. Today, a whimsical piece that’s sure to get noticed, and who knows…it just might instill a little more bravery in those who wear it! Ours retains its original Georgian era 15kt yellow gold bezel – which has a rich, silky honey patina – along with a medium weight 14kt yellow gold cable chain, 19” with additional jump rings at 18” & 17”, to wear at a variety of lengths because options are always a good thing. It is larger, at 1.25” high x 1” across, definitely a statement piece that’s sure to get noticed!
