Description of the Product

In Roman times, omega brooches, also called horseshoe brooches, were used to close a cloak or even to fasten chain mail. The omega fibula is by far one of the longest and most widespread types of brooch and was already in use 2000 years ago among the Romans and Germanic tribes.

The needle of the forged omega fibula is beautifully curved.  The needle fits snugly to the body and grips the heavy garment without sticking out. The fibula has elegantly shaped ends, which were typical for Roman-Germanic brooches in the 1st century AD. The brooch itself is hand forged and it has a black matt surface.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
