Regular price $335.00 Sale

Gilt bronze. Just over 1” (1.02”) diameter. Circular with hound’s tooth edge in 16 triangles. Line bordered inner circle. The edge is inset for the cross pin. The form is drawn from the pagan Wheel of Fortune descended from the Roman and in use even today. 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. 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 24karat gold overlay restored and suspended from an 18” gilt Sterling silver neck chain. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
