Full image caption

Cast bronze finial or 'chariot-horn cap', decorated with a soft-outlined low-relief design of three linked palmettes. The piece was said to have had traces of red enamel inlay when first found, but none now remain. The design is known as 'British Celtic art style II', derived from the Continental 'Waldalgeshein' style. There are a pair of peg-holes in neck. Place of collection is unknown, possibly the Thames at Brentford.
