VIKING PROTECTIVE BROOCH 850-1000 AD

Lot 0102
Gilt bronze, over 3/4" diameter. Symmetrical with a pair of nubs at the top and clenched hands at the bottom quarter points. The details somewhat obscured from burial. Worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and in fact, were a form of armor. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored and mounted on a modern lather cord wwith gilded clasp.
