Enigmatic Danubian Celt Lead Duck Mold♦, ca. 1st Cent AD
Lead alloy; 26mm
No one really knows the purpose of these charming ducks, other the time and the era. The descriptions of the use for these are all over the place, from good luck charms, brooch attachments and hair pin finials. But, as none of these have ever been found actually attached to a hair pin or brooch, their use still remains problematical. The best we can tell you is that these were produced by Danubian Celtic tribes.
♦ As this is made of lead, more than likely it was used as a mold for the silver pieces.
