A mirror decorated in a swirling early Celtic style using engraved circles, ovals and arches, emphasised by a fine basket weave in fill.

The mirror is round with a relatively simple loop handle which is typical of its time. The brooch was found in close proximity to the mirror together with some pottery shards.


Found by metal detectorists at a farm in Shillington, Bedfordshire.
