Seller: artancientltd (9,287) 99.6%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201027533111 A captivating ancient Persian / early Parthian bronze brooch, dating to around 500 - 200 B.C. With a distinctive, almost surrealist appearance, these magnificent fibulae are amongst the most emblematic of all Persian jewelry. Sleek and simple in its form, the brooch is moulded in the shape of a bent arm, terminating in a catch plate of incised fingers. The bow beautifully ornamented with a series of rings, with a dark olive patina. Originating in Cyprus, the arm fibula style spread to Assyria and Persia in the 7th century B.C. where it remained popular for over half a millennia. Custom mounted and fantastically well preserved, this wonderful artefact has a poise and presence not often encountered in small ornamented jewelry. For an inferior example currently on display at the Harvard Art Museum, please follow this link. Height: 1 1/2 inches. Height mounted: 2 1/4 inches. Condition: Very good, restored at clasp (no infill), otherwise excellent and mounted on a beautiful bespoke bronze stand (as shown). Provenance: Ex. US private collection, acquired 1990's.
