Gilt bronze of extraordinary form. Circular, 1 1/8” diameter the perimeter with twelve triple nub clusters forming a Wheel of Fortune. These were worn in numbers on the jerkin as decoration as well as to provide a measure of protection against sword and knife attack. The lugs here would effectively stop and engage a hostile blade. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Surface textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored and suspended from an 18” sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
