The Bronze Age European spiral metal handcrafts are unique to their culture and represent stunning ancient aesthetic art as well as craftsmanship. From massive ankle and wrist decorations to small appliqués, the spiral ornamentation permeated much of the body adornment of Central Europe during the Mid to Late Bronze Age. This is a beautiful museum-grade original set of two spiral dangler ornaments from this culture. Most burials only included a pair of these objects and despite not knowing the details of how they were found since they come from an old English private collection, it is certain these are an original set based on the identical patina and fact that two are together. A supreme example of Europe's Bronze Age art interpretation and jewelry style.
Antiquities like these are surely to appreciate in the years to come as all countries that such treasures could once be found, have long since forbid any digging or prospecting for new discoveries.
Unlike most metal artifacts sold on the market that are untreated and uncleaned, our specimens our properly cleaned, inspected and conserved in our museum conservation lab prior to being offered for sale to our clients. If ancient metal is NOT treated and stabilized correctly, IT WILL CONTINUE TO DISINTEGRATE AND CORRODE, AND COULD EVENTUALLY FALL APART.
