Northern Europe, likely Denmark. Bronze.

Provenance

French private collection, acquired in the 1980s from Art Trade

A near identical sword-hilt is preserved in the Wallace Collection (A455), although missing its blade. Our example, the blade with its rounded tip and fine incised decoration is likely to have been used for Sacrificial Ceremony.
