These pendants were worn by Druids, the elite class of Celts, who were the intellectual, legal and spiritual leaders or priests. Their exact function is debated, but as the Celtic translation for Druid was “finder of the oak tree” it seems logical that they contained sacred herbal material from the oak forests which the Druids considered sacred. This example is 1 1/8” in height plus the suspension loop, of round section with medial bar enclosure. It is bronze, professionally refurbished with the surface silvered as was likely the original. It is suspended from a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. It’s likely that more information on the spiritual function of these are objects will evolve through the information sharing power of the internet.
