Holiday snap

4 11 2011

The same friend who was in London almost two years ago is there again and has sent me another wonderful holiday snap.

It’s from the Liverpool Museum. The fine gold-work and inlay is incredible. Stunning.

The scale looks to be small, given the relative size of the display claws (and I can see the faint reflection of his fingers in the glass!). On researching it, I found it to be the Anglo-Saxon ‘Kingston Brooch’ which was found in Kent (80mm diam.). There’s another image here which I found through this site.

How thoughtful is my friend!
