Description of the Product

During Viking Age and medieval times, penannular brooches, also called horseshoe brooches, were used to close a cape or cloak on the right shoulder. This brooch is plated with genuine silver, and it is a detailed replica of a Viking brooch found in the village of Lilla Klintegårda in Gotland, Sweden.

This type of ring brooch is called a polyhedron brooch because of the polygonal, bevelled ends of the brooch. The polygonal ends of these brooches are very typical for the Eastern Scandinavian. It has been debated whether these brooches could have been used to express the wearer's identification as a merchant or the merchant's guild, however no conclusive answer has been made. 

The polyhedron brooch was widespread in the Viking Age, mainly in the Baltic region between the 9th and 11th centuries. Such horseshoe brooches are known from various sites, such as Papinsaari in Finland, Vindelgransele in Sweden, Haithabu in Germany and Ladoga Lake in Russia.

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.
