Avar, Belt and Strap Assortment, Gold Gilding, c. 6th-8th Century AD

Copper alloy;

Con/ Nearly as fabricated; four of the five have lots of gold gilding! All have a delightful flower motif as well.

Seller's Note/ An excellent ensemble for beginning collectors. The Avars loved their bling and these are no exception. Such plates were affixed to the back of their belts and would flash, making a jingling sound as they rode along. 

Imagine the flashy, jolly and jingling Avars sweeping into your town or village...and burning it to the ground. But they did it in style... ;-)
