Zoomorphic Brooch, 100-300, Roman. Copper alloy, champlevé enamel. Small brooches, often in whimsical animal forms, were worn both by Roman soldiers stationed in the provinces and by the native population. Though brooches in these forms appear throughout the Roman world, the distribution of finds and the archaeological remains of workshops suggest that the major centers of production were Britain and Gaul.

Africa | Old Idar-Oberstein (German) "Tanfouk or Talhakimt" that was traded into North Africa in the mid 19th century. The silver is not original, but given that these pieces were so highly valued by the Tuareg and other Berber people, the silver has either been added as a repair or as additional decoration. These types of Tanfouk would have been woven into the hair or worn as a pendant | Sourced in Mauritania | 40 × 25 × 4mm ~ ¥ 9,000
