An extremely fine and well-preserved example of a Late European Bronze Age solid bronze bangle. The bracelet is made from one rod of bronze, which widens at each end. An incised decorative pattern embellishes the bangle’s surface, creating a well-balanced geometric design. A rich olive-green patina covers the majority of the surface.
Date: Circa 1200-600 BC Period: Late European Bronze Age Condition: Extremely fine. The bangle is suitable for modern wear with care.
Metal jewellery is one of the most significant features of Bronze Age life, discovered as valued grave goods, buried with men and women alike. The wealthiest burials were those of warriors and princes, often containing exquisitely made bronze swords, spears, and jewellery. It was a very important part of most Bronze Age societies and something that held great value as a major part of their identity. Bronze bangles, such as this beautiful example, would have been worn as brecelets or armbands.
