Timeless Galleries are pleased to offer a lovely 1st - 2nd century A.D. Roman Fibula Brooch.
Cast in bronze almost two thousand years ago - this enigmatic brooch is formed of a pair of joined La Tene trumpets, and displays ring-and-dot decorations with crenellations to the head and foot.
The Romans used fibula brooches as clothing fasteners (fibula means clasp), and are much prized by collectors and history enthusiasts.
