Bronze item & buckles
« on: February 19, 2019, 05:02:18 PM »
I found this item in a field with chiefly Georgian coins and modern farming junk in it.

Any idea what it is? I thought it was a vase initially but it looks as though a piece from the bottom has sheared off.  It’s heavy and bronze (I think).

Also, can someone help me out a rough age/time period on these buckles?

Like the plough-horse harness buckles; common enough but nice things. Does look like an urn,  possibly made of spelter. Not sure what for; possibly just a discarded decorative item. May be the hole and missing material is where a handle was. Might be a small funerary urn to hold a small, memento amount of the deceased. Good tho'
