1-2ndC Roman Romano British Celtic Iron Age Bronze DOG Fitting Metal Detected. Colours may differ due to any flash used. As you can see its bronze and has been DUG UP.. Not sure if it was an eyes only find or a metal detector find. It is really well modelled of the front HALF of a DOG..
Or similar sort of beast.. Although it has NO teeth.. Small ears and mouth open. Looking with a loope you can just see " chain ring " marks near the collar part..
Depicting a collar on the animal. The back is a SPIKE.. Do a google search for these sort of fittings..
Often associated with helmets - furniture - buckets etc.. It has green patina and in places this is a differant colour.
It is approx 5.5cm long from spike to nose end.. The spike is nearly 2.5cm long..
So the ANIMAL half body would stick out 3cm.. The legs are 2cm long free standing from the body and including the body its just over 3.5cm long x 16mm at the widest body part....Left hand leg is slightly bent. It has done well to survive..
