Brooch, Camp Gate, Openwork, 3rd-4th Cent Rare! On Hold

Copper alloy; 31mm/9.1gm

Con/ Missing spring and pin, otherwise, as fabricated; gray/black patina with bright high-lights of original tinning; cleaned, not waxed

Ref/ Not listed in Hattatt

Seller's Note/ The pattern of this two story brooch emulates the gates to a Roman camp, watch tower, fortress, or a city gate. In the accompanying photo, note the four watch-fire turrets at the top, exactly as seen on this brooch. 

Such "camp gate" brooches are extremely rare, folks; this is only the 4th one we have ever presented.
