SOLD

c.400-300 B.C. A scarce and large example of a Celtic bronze Axe pendant on its original suspension hoop. These axe pendants were produced by the Thracian Celts that inhabited the banks of the River Danube in Bulgaria. These appealing Axe pendants were a dominant symbol in Thracian Celtic culture and were often worn as Talismen or combined together and worn bangles or in vast pectoral necklaces containing many rows of loops and miniature axes. These pendants possibly held some ceremonial significance and were most likely treasured possessions. This is a larger than usual example on a particularly large suspension hoop and totally intact, in very good condition with a greenish surface patination, Axe 24mm long x 8mm wide, suspension hoop 29mm diameter. Supplied in display box.
