Iron Age Celtic Knobbled Bracelet

Code: 10832


This is an Iron Age (Celtic) copper-alloy bracelet, dating to the 5th - 3rd century B.C. The penannular bracelet is decorated with knobbled design, comparable with knobbled "ring money" from the Hallstatt and Danube regions. This is a large example, clearly used and worn as a bracelet. This item has survived intact, though a lower kink to one terminal.
