Silvered bronze, worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, to provide 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.  Slender bun form, just under 1” width with rounded faces and ridged edge. The surface lightly textured and worn from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Fine proud form.
