A very,very rare bronze warrior's armor belt,formerly part of the Axel Guttman collection and a provenenced antiquity.This was displayed in his museum in Berlin in the 1990's.Axel Guttman was a world class collector of antiquarian arms and armor and established a collection so very large that he constructed a museum to house it.Google Axel Guttman to learn more.This bronze armor belt dates to the 4th Century B.C.and is attributed to the Samnite Culture from north to central Italy.The Samnites were the sworn enemies of the Romans and had various forms of contact with the Etruscans,Romans,and Greeks in their occupation of the Italian penninsula.The Samnites nearly dominated the entire Italian penninsula removing the Etruscans and Greeks from southern and eastern Italy.Early in their conflicts the Samnites forced a humiliating defeat on the Romans at the Caudine Forks in 321 B.C.The bronze belt was a designation of a Samnite warrior's elevation to true manhood.I have included in my pictures,photographs from the Christies Axel Guttman Collection Part 2 of the auctions from his collections after his death.This was not in the Part 2 auctions but the bronze belt bears a label from his inventory listed as "AG R53".It measures 35" long x 3.25" wide.The belt has been broken into several sections and is mounted on a flat lucite slab.The two belt clasps have vanished from age though the pronounced belt holes are intact.This is a coup for an ancient weapons collector of a known and provenenced antiquity.

I have been dealing in ancient arms and armor for 25 years.All of my inventory is unconditionally guaranteed to the original buyer.
