Object Description

An extremely fine restrung European Bronze Age necklace made from bronze, and comprising ten lengths of wire, each formed into a tight tube with a bronze ring spacer bead. Towards the base, a shield-shaped disc is formed from a single length of bronze wire, twisted into two similar figure-of-eight spirals with loop in between.

The Celtic spiral is a dynamic and popular symbol, indicative of endless movement and in use from the Neolithic period (circa 5000 BC). Bronze craftsmen continued to use the pattern during the Bronze Age, though more flamboyant and flatter spiral patterns were favoured.

Period: Circa 900-600 BC

Object Condition

Excellent condition, restrung. The necklace can be worn with care.
