Handle, Zoomorphic Dolphin, Roman Dalmatia, 2nd-3rd Cent. AD

Copper alloy; 72mm/30.2gm

Con/ As Cast; lovely green and brassy patina

Seller's Note/ Often such handles are described as a Roman helmet 'carry handle', but they are not. Rather, this was a handle for a box/cabinet or furniture pull from a wealthy Roman citizen that had the denarius to afford such a fancy item. Rare/scarce in this unbroken condition and perfect for collectors.
