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.
