Silvered bronze of broad form, just under 1 1/4” in diameter. Rounded face rising to the cylindrical center. Flat back. When fastened to the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against 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. 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 an 18" Sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
