Object Number:66-6-11A
Place Name:Northeast Aegean
Period:Early Bronze Age
Culture:

Description

Pair of "basket" earrings, not quite matching. Each basket of wires looped in back and soldered together; wires centrally divided on each by vertical strip with incised cross-hatching. Basket of "a" has double row of granulation along upper edge; grains of "b' stuck on top of applique pierced discs to give appearance of two rows of rosettes. Below each basket two suspension plates somewhat longer than their baskets. Each frontal plate has five rings from which hang short loop-in-loop chains (3 links in each) ending in single leaves. Longer chains, with leaves attached along their lengths, hang from the five holes in the rear plate of each; these chains are connected at two points by thin strips of metal pierced with holes. Each of the chains ends in a sheet metal "idol," decorated with repousse and chased dots; three of these idols are missing from "b," as is one of the leaves from the shorter chains.
