Medieval Bronze Seal Matrix With Boar’s Head. Superb Detail
C. 14th century
A nice bronze seal matrix engraved with a central motif of a boar’s head with surrounding legend which reads, “CREDE MICHI” (believe in me). The hexagonal shank leads a plain suspension loop.
Even dark patina with some light earthy surface deposits and super sharp detail.
Provenance: Ex J. C. Collection
