Seller: artancientltd (9,300) 99.6%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 291897307200 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge A stunning and elegant ancient Romano-Celtic gold brooch, dating to around 50 BC - 10 AD. The shape of this fibula is extremely rare, and this is an honest, genuine example in a market plagued by forgeries.This striking brooch has a distinctive arched bow ending in a knob terminal, the spring with two intricate and tightly winding coils, the pin still rests within its original catchplate. Adorned with beautifully intricate granulated decoration and filigree wire, this artefact has the same flowing sense of motion that characterises much Celtic metalwork from the period. In many of its key elements, this piece appears to reflect the style of bronze La Tene brooches, common in Celtic populations around 200 BC -50 AD. The quality and fineness of the ornamentation would point towards some sort of Mediterranean influence, suggesting this magnificent piece was likely produced for a Celtic (possibly Gaulish) individual of some importance during the later Iron Age. For examples of the style of La Tene brooch on which the form of this piece appears to be based, please follow this link and note figures 8 and 9. Weight: 13g. Height: 2 ½ inches. Condition: Excellent, unrestored. Provenance: Ex. French private collection of a Lady. The previous collector acquired a large group of mostly gems, but with a small number of gold pieces, in the mid-late 20th Century. Some objects in her collection were acquired from J-P Mariaud de Serres.
