Regular price $265.00 Sale

Silvered bronze of heavy broad form, just over 2 3/4” width. Oval form and heavy round section with faceted cubical terminals and tapered cross pin. When fastened to the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and, in fact, were a form of armor. In addition to being more decorative, examples of this form provided added protection with the trailing tails. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored and suspended from an 18” Sterling silver mounted polished leather neck cord. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
