Just released from my personal collection is this fantastic set of three pieces that date circa ancient China's Western Zhou period; a decorated bronze dagger axe with and accompanying horse bridle fitting decorated with coiled snakes, and a bird finial. All three pieces were purportedly uncovered together. The bridle fitting was partially cleaned to reveal the magnificent coiled snake decor. The bird finial appears to have originally been inlaid but the material is now gone. The dagger axe has a circular geometric decoration on both sides that also quite unique. The ge is just under 20 cm in length and is in good, stable condition with no repair. The horse fitting measures 8.5 cm across and the bird finial is 6.8 cm long. This is an amazing collection for the most discriminating buyer. I can include a complete condition report with the set. Feel free to email if you have any questions or would like more pics.
