Found this today.  Shocked

It's the most frightening metal object I think I've ever seen!     4 inches long.

It's got the head of a snake or possibly a dragon.

I have a feeling it's pretty old.

Any ideas?  Huh

Thats interesting Bob! Reminds me of a sword guard - probably miles out though.

It certainly looks to have been fixed to something. Whats it made of?

great find

I think it's made of copper or some sort of copper alloy.

Makes a change from hammered coins!

Stylisticly I think it looks Oriental. I would guess it is a copy of something older but what it is I have not got a clue. It is in a good condition as well. Interesting and unusual find. Well done RJM one for the Doc I reckon.

A handle off something I believe. As Paul said, probably a copy of an earlier Oriental object. I'm looking for a parallel.
