A Celtic armband made from one continuous bronze wire, coiled at each end into two large spirals. The spirals have been expertly crafted to sit opposite one another and vertically down the wearer’s arm.
Date: Circa 1500 - 1200 BC Period: Bronze Age Condition: Very fine condition, with good patination.
The Celtic spiral is a dynamic and popular symbol, indicative of endless movement and in use from the Neolithic period (circa 5000 BC). Bronze craftsmen continued to use the pattern during the Bronze Age, though more flamboyant and flatter spiral patterns were favoured.
