Bronze Chariot Fittings
3rd century AD
Diameter 2 1/4 - 3 1/2 inches (5.7 - 8.9cm)
An elegant group of three bronze fittings, these most likely were part of an elaborate harness. Each piece has an unique floral and ornamental motif. Made using the delicate opus interrasile open-work technique, the ornate designs are heightened by their beautiful green patinas.
