Lot of 4 British Iron & Bronze Bracelet & Axes

Northern Europe, British Iron Age, ca. 1st millennium BCE. A group of three axe heads, one bronze and two iron, as well as a twisted bronze wire bracelet. All of these items are small, with the axe heads likely being votive rather than functional based on their diminutive sizes; the bracelet, meanwhile, was probably for a small woman or child. All displayed nicely together on a custom stand. Size of largest axe: 4.8" W x 1.8" H (12.2 cm x 4.6 cm); 7.45" H (18.9 cm) on included custom stand. Size of bracelet: 2.25" W (5.7 cm)

Condition: Corner of one of the iron axe blades has been repaired. Both iron items have oxidized patina with some small corroded losses on their edges, notably around the socket of the larger. The bronze axe head has been stabilized and has some small losses to its edges. The bronze bracelet is in very nice condition.

Provenance: ex-private Green collection, York, United Kingdom, acquired in United Kingdom
