Ark, not Arc...

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on January 22, 2018 at 3:12pm

I didn't look at the whole picture, just the faces. Can now see two lions, not a bird. Not Noah and the Arc. Thanks Michael.

I checked Jesus and two lions, nothing. I check Daniel and two lions, lots of stuff but not this.

Fact that OP hasn't answered, it's been 8 days, or shown us the other side makes me think this is just a test to see how smart, or dumb, we are. Other side probably gives all the details. I saw some examples of these being church medallions given to students for attendance, etc.

Comment by Michael on January 20, 2018 at 1:07am

Not a Lion and a bird, two lions, both have long tails and a mane.  One creatures' design is basically a mirror of the other.  Therefore, not Noah as there weren't two lions on the Ark.

The text shown on the Hanseatic Seals is in German, the font style is also extremely similar to that shown on Darren's item.  I'm still not saying this is in fact what Darren's item is, just that the language is not Cyrillic, Herbew, Greek and as for Phoenician, well, I'm not that familiar with the evolution of their alphabet, but from what I've seen, it doesn't look like that to me either.

Of course, I may still be wrong about it, I really wish Darren would reply with further information as to what the back looks like, close up photos, straighter on, better lighting to enhance the pattern and lettering etc...

I have had this for a while, and yes, I think I got it at my local Goodwill.   I recently tried finding another one online, just to get some information, if any.   Could not find it.   I originally thought it was glass, but maybe it is some sort of resin, or something.  Just curious if anyone might know anything about it.   Pink flamingo glass (?) hinged trinket box.   Thanks!

No sail...looks like Noah's Ark to me. Animals on both sides of bearded man (lion and bird) affirm.  Don't recognize the words. Maybe (if it's the Ark) Hebrew, Greek, Phoenician or Cyrillic Greek Orthodox.

Comment by Michael on January 17, 2018 at 3:53am

Hi Darren, haven't heard back from you yet... so thought I'd just quickly offer my suggestion here anyway.  Click on the links for more info

It could be a Hanseatic League for someone, examples following.

The Seal of Bergen, Norway (Below)

or Hanseatic Seal of Stralsund (Below)

Siegel Stralsund 1329.preview

Hanseatic Seal of Elbing (below) couldn't find a photo of their actual seal, just the drawing.

Siegel Elbing 1350

Hey, Michael!  I think I did what you said because I was able to copy and paste again!
