Viking Tortoise Brooch with "Gripping Beasts"

This richly detailed Viking Brooch features what are historically referred to as "Gripping Beasts" because of the way they grasp their surroundings or their own body. The appearance of Gripping Beasts in Viking art signals a distinct separation from the styles that preceded it. Due to the artistic portrayal of beasts such as this, they have sometimes been considered to be stylized wolves, animals that were very important to Norse mythology. This particular brooch is inspired by an artifact discovered in Lisbjerg, Denmark. Brooches like this were typically worn as a pair, and pinned to clothing with a chain worn dangling between the two brooches. We are selling these individually in case you don't want to purchase a pair. This brooch is made of finely polished silver pewter that is lead-free and completely safe to wear. The pin along the back is made of steel to resist bending or breaking. Please note, this is not a cheap mass-produced "made in China" article of jewelry. This is the real deal. The attention to detail is superb. Perfect for any Viking or Scandinavian attire or fashion style.
