Our Price: £32.00

Late Bronze age c. 900-700 B.C. An excellent and scarce Late Bronze Age bronze bead unearthed on a Bronze Age habitation site in North Yorkshire and from an old Durham collection. Of a solid "doughnut shaped" form, with flattened top and bottom with a wide centrally drilled suspension hole through the centre. Possibly once silvered or gilded but now with a pleasant light olive green patina. Possibly one of many strung together as part of an elaborate necklace. A few tiny inconspicuous surface pits otherwise totally intact and in very nice overall condition, of good metal with decent shiny surfaces 15mm diameter x 4mm thick, a nice example of the type.
