Celtic belt hook from Kufstein (smaller version), 5th century BC.
This originally in openwork made Celtic belt hook from Kufstein, Tyrol, is now in the Archäologische Staatssammlung in Munich and dates from the second half of the 5th century BC. The original was already broken into two parts at that time. For the purpose of repair, the two pieces were riveted onto a precisely fitting bronze plate; hence this the belt hook no longer looks like an openwork. The replica was made a little smaller so that the belt could also fit through the loops of today’s pants. Länge des sichtbaren Beschlägs 7,2 cm. For a belt width of 3.6 cm. You can also find the full size version in the catalogue.
On request and for an additional charge, I can also provide the belt hook with a leather strap. Please ask.
