Viking Age strap ends from Ireland

Postby oleg » Fri Mar 22, 2013 4:56 am

Hi,

We are going to order some of the Irish strap ends. First model in wax matches to copper alloy strap end from Dunbell, Co. Kilkenny.

Is there any interest/demand in strap ends among you guys? We are trying to estimate quantities for the initial casting :)

Wow. That met with resounding silence, didn't it? What is the dating on the strap end? I might be interested in one, but I do 1000ADish.

Hi Oleg,

where do you have these cast? I contacted three bronze casting places in Ireland and no reply yet ...

Thank you,

Jan

We are thinking about a few other models. For instance, one with animal head, but without any decoration - punch it yourself.
Any interested parties?

I got two of them, and the look amazing. The detailed decoration looks so good I had to as Oleg was it tooled or cast...it looks too good to be cast as a piece. Wow.

Thanks Oleg!
