Circular bronze, Just under 1 1/8” diameter with rounded front and flat back forming a ridged edge. The surface with texture from burial. Professionally conserved and the 24karat gold surface restored. On a modern black leather neck cord with gilt chain closure, gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. 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. Delicate form and proportions. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
