This is a wonderful, early cloth pin of copper or bronze. Belonging to the early Central Europe Bronze Age (2000–1700 BC). German name "Ösenkopfnadel", occurrance from Eastern France, Switzerland, West and Central Germany to Southern Poland and Czechia. The Bronze Age, evolving out of the preceding Chalcolithic period, is a fascinating moment of evolution with important economic and social changes as metallurgy develops, while stone implements are still being used and made. Mining expands with ensuing contacts and commercialization; fire is mastered and a new class of metalworkers emerges. Most of the production is composed of tools and weapons such as celts, axes, spearheads, daggers and swords; personal ornaments such as bracelets, fibulas, torques are also made in considerable quantity. Parallel with the above, gold was sought after and beautifully fashioned, in part to answer the demands of a new warrior aristocracy. The Bronze Age smith was particularly sensitive to line and form as exemplified by his production. The chronology of this period is somewhat in flux and arbitrary, though many dates are based on sound contexts from excavation. The divisions between the Early, Middle and Late Bronze Age differ according to countries and schools of thought. The Bronze Age is part of the three-age system for prehistoric societies. In that system, it follows the Stone Age and is followed by the Iron Age. In Central Europe, the early Bronze Age Unetice culture (1800–1600 BC) includes numerous smaller groups like the Straubing, Adlerberg and Hatvan cultures. Some very rich burials, such as the one located at Leubingen with grave gifts crafted from gold, point to an increase of social stratification already present in the Unetice culture. All in all, cemeteries of this period are rare and of small size. The Unetice culture is followed by the middle Bronze Age (1600–1200 BC). A really rare artifact with angular cross section. From an old German collection. More details will follow the arrow head. I guarantee absolutely for the authenticity of this outstanding European Bronze Age artifact.
