A very rare and very large bronze age period spiral cloak brooch.
This item which dates to circa 1000-800 BC, is in fabulous allover condition.
It is of one piece design and takes the form of two co-ajoining spirals , of excellent size and proportion.
The iron fastening pin has been lost in antiquity, however the tip has been left in situ under the catchplate on the reverse.
A truly majestic piece with wonderful patination to the bronze.
Ex.private collection 1970s.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
