Ring brooch made as a detailed copy of the brooch found in Høm, Denmark.
Dated to the 900s. The original is made of gilded silver and is now at the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen.

The three heads are especially expressive and typical of the so-called Borre style, which enjoyed great popularity in the Viking Age.

A total of six related ring brooches in the same style are known from Scandinavia, most of which come from Norway. This one from Høm is, however, the one of the highest quality.

Size: 7 x 12 cm needle. Handmade in bronze.

Well suited for closing both heavy wool coats and shawls.
