Default Sentali Bronze shield

Greetings folks,

Here for sharing is a Sentali shield from Bangladesh. It has a bronze face with copper dome bosses (I made the eight smaller ones to replace missing ones). The 4 middle ones are from copper coins.

The spike, rim, and circular hook are iron.

This is a rare form of shield, and rarer still is the bronze face type.

Does anyone have any information on this?

What a delightful object - rather reminds me of the European lantern shield.

My shield weighs around 2.5 pounds.
