Guest Book
ncient Near East, Luristan, ca. 1200 to 800 BC. A massive really elaborate bronze cloak pin, cast via the lost wax (cire perdue) process with poppy flower shaped terminal.

Used to fasten clothes, in this case due to the unusually heavy fabric and decoration, likely leather for presentation use - perhaps for a very thick cape or leather armor. The lower terminal decorated with a star in the bottom, knobs and 3 spiked, decorated with concentric lines and criss-cross patterns.

Size: 145 mm.

Condition: Superb! Wonderful warm red-brown patina with light green dusting.
