Buckle, Dolphin with Orb, Fragment, c. 5th Cent. AD

Copper alloy; 32mm/3.6gm

Con/ One side missing, otherwise, As Cast. Choice unblemished green patina

Ref/ A&L SL4.6 (Crested Open Loop type)

Seller's Note/ This depiction of a crested dolphin, eye and all, appears more like a dragon, does it not? As self-evident, ancient metal workers/smiths may have never seen a dolphin (let alone one with a crest) with their own eyes as presented with this buckle fragment. Either way, it is so charming that Sheri says this would make a great necklace pendent!
