Regular price $180.00 Sale

Bronze, just over 1" (1.02”) in diameter, robust form. Round form and section with 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. Lightly textured from burial. The silver surface is restored, on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain, jewelry gift-boxed with certification of authenticity.
