In the Celtic world horses were of the highest value. They represented princely power and were proper gifts for royalty. My unusual replica fibula brooch is from the La Tene period around 600 BC. The circles inscribed on the surface represent the sun who brings the gift of constancy. The rider sits erect and you'll notice something a bit odd hanging from the horse's bridal which seems to confirm the existence of the Celtic cult of the head

The original bronze brooch is housed in the Archaeological Museum of Madrid. By replacing it's missing pin with a thin curved bar now it can be used to hold reading glasses in an elegant manner. Hook the glasses through the loop and they'll always be at hand.

Wonderful gift for horse lovers and their friends especially those who lose their glasses!
I designed a unique history box for this piece filled with information. Hope you like it.

Size 2" x 2"
Hand cast in solid sterling silver, white brass or yellow brass

I love my Celtic dragon! It's one of my new favourite pieces. Although I purchased it to hold my reading glasses, I find myself wearing this all the time. I get compliments on it where ever I go!
