Kraftig Profilierte-type Zoomorphic Brooch, 1st Cent. AD
Copper alloy, 59mm/17.9gm, missing pin, cleaned but not waxed, green patina with bronze hightlights.
Ref/ None - Hattatt does not reference any K/P type brooch with any zoomorphic representations.
Over the years we have held in hand scores of K/P type brooches but never one with a bird...and probably will never again.
If you are brooch/fibulae collector, this rare gem is perfect for your collection.
