Viking Brooches for sale
Pairs of decorative Viking brooches were in widespread use among Norse women before the 8th to at least the 12th century to fasten their apron dresses. Size, shape and usage altered little throughout the Viking period, though the style of decoration evolved apace with contemporary Viking art. Many Viking brooches that we regularly offer for sale have animal head terminals and beautiful zoomorphic interlaced designs. Types include disc brooches, trefoil brooches, axe-shaped brooches and tortoise brooches.
