Seller: Top-Rated Seller wear-the-past (2,645) 100%, Location: Bath, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 372495119158 This is a rare Bronze Age gold 'lock-ring', dating to circa 1600 - 1400 B.C. This item would have acted as a single link in a regal chain or royal collar. These 'lock-rings' were used as a form of currency for trade (a precursor to Celtic Ring-Money). Similar 'lock-rings' can be seen in the British Museum (see last photo). This example is smaller than some of the larger ones I have sold, so likely formed one of the outer links in a graduated chain.OBJECT: Lock-RingCULTURE: Bronze AgeDATE: c. 1600 - 1400 B.C.MATERIAL: GoldSIZE: 14.87mm x 11.55mm x 4.57mmWEIGHT: 1.91 gramsPROVENANCE: Ex.
