Lot 0031
Gilt bronze, 7/8” diameter wreath form with incised line decoration. 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.

Please note that this lot has a confidential reserve. When you leave a bid in advance of the auction, submit your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.
