Spiral Trumpet Openwork Ring

Spiral Trumpet Openwork Ring

This style is based on an Iron Age Irish style called “spiral-trumpet”. Like all pre-Christian Irish styles, it was abstract and its meaning is obscure.

This style set Irish Iron Age Art apart from Continental style – though there were still many similarities. It was a composition made up of simple geometric forms: elongated curved triangles (‘trumpets’), lozenges and spirals. These types of designs typically adorned personal objects (jewellery), military objects (shields and scabbards) and horse trappings
