    Bust with winged dragon on helm.

    It is 1 1/8 inches wide and made of brass or copper, looks somewhere in the middle. There are no tell tale signs of how it was mounted on the back. Any ideas? Art

    By design influence it looks Renaissance / Florentine. Not to imply that its 15th Century. If 19th Century then its Renaissance Revival. Lobster tail helmet.

    I think your medallion is a portrayal of St. George. Hence the dragon. It has similar design details as the cameo, ca. 1820, with its
    lobstertail helmet, scaled earflaps & ruffles at the neck. This suggests they may have both been modeled after a more
    commonly known image of St. George. I think your medallion is at least early 19th century.
