Some wonderfully enigmatic pieces now available at Timeless Galleries: a collection of Decorated Viking Belt Mounts!
Dating from the 8th - 12th centuries A.D., and measuring between 13mm and 34mm, the bronze mounts would have formed the decoration on a leather belt over a thousand years ago.
With an excellent provenance, the mounts display a variety of shapes, including rectangular, pelta, rosette, ovate, heart-shaped, and lyre-shaped - many being decorated with ring and dot patterning and scroll detailing.
A set of seventeen Viking Bronze Belt Mounts, now available in the Timeless Galleries.
