Bow Brooch with Disk


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 301

Originally, these pieces were joined as one: the disk formed the bottom of a round box that was affixed to the arc of the large brooch. Ornately patterned gold, now only fragmentary, once covered the entire piece, even parts of the brooch that were never visible.
