Brooch, Zoomorphic Hare, ca.2nd Century
Copper Alloy; 31mm/5.7gm
Con/ Cleaned and waxed, missing pin, parti-colored patina
Rf/ Hattatt catalog 1634 (spot on)
Charming example of a happy hare running right, faint lines to resemble fur. The odd condition of the patina leads me to believe that it once was silvered. Worn by a Roman child or woman?
