An incredibly rare and very large ,celtic warriors iron ring handled dagger.
This item which is complete with its original iron scabbard end chape, dates to circa 700-400 BC.
In original stunning condition, this item has been fully conserved and mounted on a custom made display stand.
It has a small old stable crack running across part of the blade as shown ,but all solid and only mentioned for accuracy ,as it is hardly visible.
The thick top edge of the blade still retains some good cross hatching decoration which shows that this piece was highly prized by its original owner.
Ex. Private collection from the 1970s.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
