Our Price: £0.00


Early 6th Century A.D. A nice Early Anglo Saxon Plate headed "Small-long" bronze brooch found in North Yorkshire many years back and from a Durham collection. Brooch of typical form for this period with rectangular head plate, notch decoration at edges, shallow humped bow with a narrow but gently widening catch plate. Iron pin missing and a barely noticeable and professionally administered metallurgical repair to a small crack in the bow (a great many Saxon brooches are found broken or damaged as a result of impact from farm machinery, ploughs, rotavators etc and most will have some form of repair or restoration as a result) otherwise the brooch is in nice overall condition, robust, with decent surfaces and an overall dark patination, a nice example of the type, 57mm long x 27mm wide.
