A very rare viking decorated bronze strap end.
This item which dates to circa 8th-10th century AD, is in fabulous allover condition .
It is of openwork bronze design showing wolf like creatures with their heads thrown back
together with two birds below..
This item would have decorated the end of a leather waist belt and looked very impressive .
Ex. Private collection 1970s.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity .
