Silvered bronze with oval top, about 7/8” width with the cross pin. Terminals below adding protection from 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 with minimal weight and expenditure of material. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored and suspended from a Sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity
