You are looking for specific references to a St. George/Dragon used as a 
table decoration pre-1600, right?  I'm not sure if you will find a 
reference to that specific item, but there are certainly references to 
other non-food items used on dining tables which might be used as 
documentation for other items such as castles, trees holding edible 
fruits, fire-breathing animals...

Are you looking to document items made of something other than food? 
Or, just items made of food?
