Information

Fragment of a large ornament composed of pendants. Wire ring with two long, spirally wound strips of bronze, each holding a circular bronze pendant attached by a loop of wire. One of the drops is missing both wire connecting loops and the circular pendant. Object A has a suspension ring at one end and bead at the other, the bead is a flattened hemisphere. Chains and chain like pendants with various beads are common in Villanovan and Early Etruscan burials, and generally are individual creations. This example is too fragmentary to assign to a particular ornament or utensil
