Interesting...are those gold pieces Scythian?

It's part of a special exhibition on saddlery at the National Museum of Iceland, but unfortunately I didn't record where the piece originated.  However, the writing on the piece is definitely a Scandinavian name and has a date of 1770 on it so my guess is Icelandic.

The whole piece is visible here: http://www.thjodminjasafn.is/english/faldar-undirsidur/current-exhibitions/splendid-saddlery
