Sutton Hoo shoulder clasps
NOT AVAILABLE AT PRESENT
A pair of gilded shoulder clasps based on the ones found at Sutton Hoo.
The originals are made of gold with inlayed garnet and mosaic glass cells. The garnet and glass cells in my version are simulated with resin enamels and the clasps are made of gilded brass.
The clasps are both hinged in the centre, have attachment loops on the reverse (as original) and are held together by boar headed pins on safety chains.
The dimensions are the same as the original, give or take 1mm, roughly 13cm x 54mm and about 6mm thick.
