Early Anglo-Saxon period girdle-hanger.

Perhaps the most distinctive objects of the early Anglo-Saxon period are girdle-hangers, which imitate the shape of keys or latch-lifters. They were made from metal, copper alloy (brass), and hung from a belt around the waist called a girdle.

Although the girdle-hanger was not an actual key or latch-lifter, it seems to symbolise the idea that women controlled access to the home.

Detailed replica.
Handstamped and hand sawed.
The late 5th to early 7th century AD.
11X4 cm.
Made od brass.
