Seller: artancientltd (9,489) 99.4%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 390853420183 Material: Silver, Original or Reproduction: Original, Genuine or Reproduction: Genuine, Age: Medieval, Origin: European, Details: A Merovingian Frankish cast silver mount in the form of a boar, dating to 500 - 600 AD. The tusks cleanly indicated and the neck with crossed niello decorative patterns, the eye a circular garnet. With its garnet eye and sleek curving head, this beautiful piece recalls the style of the more common bird headed mounts of the Merovingian period, yet the artistry shown here is far more accomplished. When one pictures the early Dark Ages, it conjures images of a murky, violent and anarchic period, when the greatest empire the world had ever known slipped into the cultural shadows. Yet art never lies, and beautiful artefacts such as this challenge the myth that this was ever an age of darkness. Length: 1 ¼ inches. Condition: Good, unrestored. Provenance: Ex.
