Pair of Luristan Bronze Pins with Felines

Pair of Luristan Bronze Pins with Felines

Pair of ancient Luristan bronze pins, joined by a later metal link chain. A pair of heraldic felines decorates the top of each pin.

Ca. 1500 - 800 BC.
Height of tallest pin: 4 1/4 in. (10.8 cm).

Luristan objects, including impressive and numerous decorative bronze horse trappings and weapons, are found mainly in western Persia. Luristan artifacts are most likely the work of the ancient Medes, an Indo-European group that eventually dominated Persia.

Cf. Metropolitan Museum of Art inv. no. 32.161.37 (here with only one feline)

Formerly in the Estate of William Kelly Simpson.
