A5733

Regular price $160.00 Sale

Silvered bronze. 1 1/8” diameter. Thick rounded section with a 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. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored and suspended from a Sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
