In the collections of the National Museum of Banat from Timisoara there is a very nice multi-spiral bracelet made of bronze plate, belonging to the Regelsbrunn type. The piece from Ghilad (Timiș County) is decorated with a median rib, and on the edges is arranged a string of pearls, made in the au repoussé technique. One end of the piece ends with a volute, and the other with a spiral, consisting of five turns. The bracelet was discovered in 1867 next to a ceramic vessel in a burial grave. Based on analogies, it dated back to the Late Bronze Age II (Bz C2/D - beginning of Ha A1 Central European) ca. 1450-1250 BC. It probably circulated in the late Cruceni-Belegiš cultural environment, characteristic of the low plain of Banat.
Also on this occasion is published the multi-spiral bronze bracelet from Gornea (Sichevița commune, Caraș-Severin county), located in the collections of the Vršac City Museum, belonging to the same Regelsbrunn type. Due to the full section, the bracelet was cast, and then the ends were hammered in the form of spirals. Later it was decorated on either side of the median rib with a string of pearls made in the au repoussé technique. The piece was acquired by the Vršac Museum in 1905 and seems to come from a hoard found in 1882 in Gornea „Păzăriște”, in the Romanian Banat. It is also dated to the Late Bronze Age II (Bz C2/D - beginning of Ha A1 Central European) ca. 1450-1250 BC. Along with other discoveries in the area of the Danube Iron Gates, it probably circulated in the late Dubovac-Žuto Brdo-Gârla Mare cultural environment.
