Beautiful hand crafted Roman brooch with original enamelling, found in England circa 150 AD.
Roman brooches with a fastening pin are also known as fibulae (fibula) and can be found in a large variety of different shapes and sizes. Some were functional and used like a safety-pin to secure clothing, but others were purely decorative and attached to clothing for their appearance.
This particular brooch is very interesting, however it was found without its pin and therefore cannot be worn in its present condition.
Dimensions: 1.5 inches long and 0.75 inches wide (4cm x 1.8cm).
