Prehistoric Celtic culture is also named La Tène after a noted Swiss archaeological site. It is exemplified by rich warrior burials, some containing chariots and imported metalware. The distinctive art style, both symbolic and surrealistic, is based on long curling patterns in which motif and background are interchangeable.

Hollow hinged bracelet with classic Celtic curling patterns on front. The holes may have been for enamel inlays - a Celtic speciality.
