Silver brooch of La Tène III type, with g=bead near top of bow and broken perforated catchplate. Four coil spring with external chord. A circular ring runs through the spring coil, and to this ring is attached a short length of chain, which would probably once have joined this brooch to a second example so that the pair could be worn together.
