Early 6th Century A.D. A very large and impressive Early Anglo Saxon Cruciform bronze brooch found in North Yorkshire many years back and from a Durham collection. The brooch is very ornate with a square head plate decorated with vertical lines and punched pellets with three adjoining ornate finials and the main bow forming the Cruciform shape. Small humped bow leading to the small square catchplate with a large ornate terminal below in the form of a Dragons head complete with bulbous eyes and flared nostrils. Iron pin and the very corner tip of head plate beneath right hand lobe missing, some minor nibbling to side of catchplate plus a barely noticeable 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 this large and impressive Saxon brooch is in good overall condition, robust with a pleasant overall dark patination, a decent example of it's type, 111mm long x 55mm wide x 22mm deep.
