Copper alloy brooch. Cast dragonesque brooch, Mackreth 2011, type DRAG 3.a4. A concavo-convex lentoid 'body' has a narrow coiled protrusion of loops at one end, perhaps representing a beast snout and ear. Though the opposite end of the brooch appears unbroken, illustrated parallels may suggest it has lost another snout-and-ear from an originally symmetrical arrangement. Cells on the convex side of the body include two pairs of rectangular cells with a pair of pointed triangular cells at either end of the central block. The central cells retain yellow enamel and white material, while th…
