Lot 0051
Gilt bronze, 7/8” diameter wreath form with foliage alternating with the clasped hands motif. 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. Some wear from the time of its use. Professionally conserved with the gold surface restored. On a modern black leather neck cord with gilt chain closure for contemporary wear. Item ships one business day after payment.
