A Visual Catalogue of Richard Hattatt's Ancient Brooches.
Soft back, 103 pages of thousands of illustrated brooches
(his own very carefully done drawings) and a finds location index.
Richard Hattatt was a collector in the UK who between 1982 and 1989
published four books describing the brooches (and a few
other types of things )
in his large collection which was eventually broken up ,
partly disbursed to the
in Oxford and in the Devizes Museum and partly sold on the antiquities market.
A very large number of
his pieces were mounted on double
sided card stands
with typed and annotated descriptions. Believe it or not
there are fakes of the
types of brooches in his collection mounted on fakes of these types of card stands.
There are also fakes mounted on such faked card
stands of small bronze items such
as he did not have in his collection. I can usually distinguish the genuine from
fake piece sand stands from only photo graphs so if you
have what you think are
Hattatt items mounted on Hattatt type card stands and are
unsure, get in touch.
