Lot 0012 Details
Circular bronze, just under 1 inch diameter with rounded face. Worn in numbers on the surface of 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. Exceptional example modeled as a wreath. Fine glossy dark green age patina as found.
