A very nice Anglo Saxon cruciform long brooch . This item which dates to circa 6th- 7th century AD, is of good style and form . It shows a large top terminal with a square headplate .The bow is finished with a horses head footplate in typical saxon style.The side terminals are missing from the headplate but this is normal as they were mounted on an iron axis pin, which has long since decayed in antiquity.The iron fastening pin has now been lost for the same reason , however the catchplate is still present . .A small chip to the headplate corner as seen however a large important brooch which would enhance any collection.
