Object Description

An elegant and rare Ancient Roman bronze pincher brooch, composed of a rounded bow with two mouth-like openings, hinged together by a rivet. The pin tension is obtained by the closing of the mouth-pincher. This model was used from the late 2nd Century to the middle of the 3rd Century, AD, across the European continent and within the Alpine region, although examples have also been recovered in Spain and Greece. Its modest popularity may be due to its rather simple form.

Date: Circa 2nd – 3rd Century AD
