Ancient Celtic Silver La Tene Brooch Fibula shaped as a Duck decorated with two Filigree rings (is slightly damaged on ring near to the tail)
Ducks along with Geese, share the same symbolism of transition due to their migratory nature and were very honoured by the Celts.
Geese are also a Celtic animal symbol of honesty, simplicity and resourcefulness, but also of a hearth (because of their sensivity) and a home ( because they always turn back home).
The pin is missing, slightly is broken the opposite part where the pin was attached, otherwise in Good Condition with a nice cabinet tone.
