It's late celtic 50BC to 50AD... these are known as Hangers, danglers or fobs.... they were used to hold things from a harness.

I agree that the form is that of an Iron Age fob or dangler.

Will need to be seen by a FLO or other expert to determine that it's not a more recent production deliberately designed in this Celtic style.

I hope it is Celtic for you Dan but when you showed it to me it looked too bright for  Celtic after all those years in the ground. Good luck anyway hope I'm proved wrong !

Ahhh! now I can see the shank. Yes I think Neil was right, They are now all being classed as Fobs but there is still no known use for them.
This is one from close to your area....

I never did Neil Roll Eyes It's just knowing that the Iron age Britons went into battle naked, the term "Celtic dangler" forms a whole different picture in my head which is so so wrong Cheesy
