Description

'This is the most complete publication on medieval basket earrings to date. It analyzes the findings from all points of view and examines the various problems'; with these words of prof. von Hessen closes the Preface to the work that has seen the Author engaged for several years on a topic, that of early medieval basket earrings, so far not studied in an exhaustive way. The scarcity of the finds, their distribution in collections scattered all over the world and, often, the lack of precise indications regarding the places of discovery, have made these materials a 'problem' full of unknowns, first of all if such jewels, which was always given the nickname 'Byzantines', were actually produced in the goldsmiths of the Eastern Empire or simply imitated and re-proposed in the West, for example in Lombard Italy, where they were later found. Research has addressed this and many other questions, always making use of new scientific criteria, finally arriving at interesting solutions. A rich catalog and fifty-four tables of drawings complete this precious volume.
