This fine piece of contemporary-jewelry is part of the VA Barry Brinker Vintage Collection acquired in the 1990s. All pieces in this collection are hand-made, one-of-a-kind and personally designed by the well-known jewelry designer who blended 950 silver with objects such as antiquities or antiques, artifacts, gemstones, coins and other treasures acquired during his travels. Necklaces and other pieces were created in his studio by expert silversmiths following his specific instructions. The pendant here is a restrike of a 1760 thaler, set in a high rimmed silver frame with two top loops to attach to a chain. Thalers are one of many large, high-content and quality silver coins minted in the German states and territories of the Holy Roman Empire and the Habsburg monarchy during the Early Modern period. It was issued with a diameter of about 40 mm and a weight of about 25 to 30 grams. The 1760 thaler was restruck many times with a bust of Maximillian III Joseph (the Prince-elector of the Holy Roman Empire and the Duke of Bavaria) on the front and on the back the crowned Madonna and Child above clouds holding and imperial orb and scepter with the date 1760 which can be seen on this pendant. The words Patrona Bavariae mean “Protector of Bavaria” and refer to the Duke Maximillian Joseph and also to Christ and the Madonna. The rolo style 21” silver chain of oval and round links holds three sets of vintage French fittings above and a matching silver oval dangling below. It has a hook closure with the Barry Brinker (BB) signature flame shaped tag as part of the clasp. This versatile piece can be used with any type of attire,
