CELTIC VOTIVE BELL NECKLACE, 7th-5th CENTURY BC

UC9648

Regular price $185.00 Sale

Bronze, just under 7/8" height, delicately cast with integral suspension loop. Generally acknowledged as exchange objects (money) these frequently, are encountered with pieces chipped out. If valued as money, it follows that the fragments were used votively as a sacrifice. This example is not so compromised but has small imperfections as cast. It is likely a burial votive, interred complete. Found in Ireland, England (Scotland), and Western Europe. Celtic religious ceremonies were officiated by Druids who were spiritual leaders (priests) as well as lawmakers and rulers. Professionally refurbished with silver overlay on a modern sterling silver neck chain.
