c.400-300 B.C. A scarce and excellent Celtic silver Axe pendant with punched decoration on either side. A very nicely made axe pendant of good quality silver with punched decoration on either side featuring a circular design consisting of rows of concentric rows of punched dots and triangle of 3 punched dots surroundin it. Suspension hoop at top end. These little axe pendants were produced by the Thracian Celts that inhabited the banks of the River Danube in Bulgaria. 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 example is totally intact, in excellent condition and a lovely example of its type. This pendant could easily be threaded onto a fine silver chain and worn again if required. Supplied in a display box, Axe 20mm long x 15mm wide.
