Etruscan Silver Torque and Fibula, ca. 6th-4th Cent. BC
$ 1350

Rare Etruscan neck ring with outwards-turned tapering ends and an appertaining fibula. The grayish patina and the effloresced surface denote that the silver contains additions of other metals like lead and tin. Neck rings were known from the Celts and also used during the Villanovan period. Silver. Etruscan, ca. 6th-4th century BC. W. torque 13.8 cm (5.4 in), L. fibula 9.8 cm (3.85 in). Torque broken and reconstituted, thickened lower end with filing traces. Part of the fibula's needle restored, point missing. Swiss private collection (data will be disclosed to the buyer)
