Celtic Hair Clip in Pewter with Braid Pattern, approx. 1000-600 BC
The Celts (Keltoi) were a nomadic people who spread westward from Eastern and Central Europe to England from about 1000 - 400 BC. The nomads consisted of several independent tribes. They had no written language and no common leadership. Their art was characterized by elegantly entwined warp threads, stylized animals, knots, spirals, and wheels. Some scholars interpret these designs as symbolic and even magical.
The intertwined braids were developed from tartan fabrics and basket weaving techniques. The braid pattern was generally endless. This design was widespread in England and Ireland, where it is often found depicted in carvings on stone crosses.
Pewter with Celtic design in raised relief. The buckle has a brace.
Supplied in a velvet bag with drawstring.
