Antique Late Georgian/Early Victorian 15ct-18ct Cornucopia “Horn Of Plenty” Fob Watch Charm
The Cornucopia was carried by the Roman goddess Fortuna (Greek: Tyche), the personification of luck, suggesting this charm was likely intended to top up the good luck of its owner, as well as bringing the usual abundance and nourishment.
Cornucopia comes from Latin cornu copiae, which translates literally as "Horn of Plenty." A traditional staple of feasts, the cornucopia is believed to represent the horn of a goat from Greek mythology. According to legend, it was from this horn that the god Zeus was fed as an infant.
