Noric Pannonian Duck Head Mount

Duck head mounts were found in considerable numbers together with other Noric-Pannonian belt fittings. Jochen Garbsch interprets the fittings, which always occur in pairs, as additional stiffeners and decorations of the woman's belt, which were attached to the side of the belt above the hip. The duck head mounts correspond to Garbsch group E3 with a central hinge, which ensures a better fit to the body shape.
The exact function or meaning of the fittings is unknown, but the design is in an old Celtic tradition. Similar animal heads or water bird symbolism can already be found on Middle Latène belt chains, brooches and other implements.

Length approx. 12.5 cm, solid bronze. Price for 1 piece.
