Brooch, Zoomorphic Bird, 1st 2nd Cent AD


Zoomorphic Bird Brooch, Roman Era, 1st-2nd Cent AD

Copper alloy; 29mm/4.4gm

Charming example of a bird in flight. Original enameling on the wings have been restored to as new. Four circle-and-dot patterns to ward off the "Evil Eye" between.

Perfect for any Roman collector.

Ref/ not listed in Hattatt

Seller's Note/ Such brooches were certainly wrought by artisans in the Roman Provinces of Dalmatia or Pannonia and all have a Celtic motif. Ground found in Croatia.

Either this was popular motif copied by different artisans or perhaps from the very same artisan? You tell me. Compare it to another similar brooch presented in our shop.
