c.2nd / 3rd Century A.D. A rare, very unusual and decorative Roman bronze "open work" fibula brooch, found in the Midlands some years back and from a Northamptonshire collection. This very unusual style brooch consists of a central oval main body, slightly recessed with a now indistinct design within (possibly may have once been enamelled?). At the top and bottom of the brooch open work loops emanate either side each seemingly terminating in small almost zoomorphic dragonesque heads, a central loop at very top and bulbous finials at base and on either side of the brooch. On the reverse, a small catchplate, hinge and hinge fragment of original pin still in situ, although pin itself now lost. In nice overall condition with an attarctive shiny orangey brown surface patination, a nice and unusual addition to any Roman brooch collection, 39mm long x 23mm wide.
