Superb Medieval Bronze Seal Matrix Depicting Falcon On Prey
C. 14th century
A bronze seal matrix engraved with a central mofit of a falcon on prey with inscription to border, “ALAS IE SV PRIS” which translates to (Alas, I am caught/ taken). The hexagonal shank leads a plain suspension loop.
A nice even glossy patina with fine sharp detail and an excellent example.
