Bronze Age European Spiral Armlets

A pair of ancient Bronze Age European coiled armlets with nine windings, and end in spirals bent inward, ritualistically.

Late Bronze Age, Central Europe.
Hallstatt, ca. 1200 - 900 BC.
Length: 5 1/4 and 5 1/2 in. (13.5 and 14 cm).

The inhabitants of Central Europe from Gaul to the Danube Basin in the second millennium BC coalesced into a culture identified in the archaeological record by large well defined cemeteries containing numerous cremation burials contained in cinerary urns. The graves were often accompanied by bronze tools and ornaments. The wealthiest burials were those of warriors and princes, often containing finely made bronze swords, spears, and adornments.

Formerly in a German private collection.
