Zoomorphic Closed Loop Buckle, c. 4th-5th Cent

Copper alloy; 30mm/5.8gm

Con/ Superb; with extra glossy green patina and exquite details, cleaned not waxed; missing pin.

Two dolphins/dragons/lions facing, holding a globe (pearl?) in their jaws.

Ref/ A&L SL 4 varieties (not listed?)

Seller's Note/ This buckle is spectacular; jaws grasping a pearl. Maybe dolphins, maybe dragons, maybe lions or just a strange combination of all three? Your guess is as good as ours. Either way, this zoomorphic buckle is highly collectable for those in the know.
