Are you searching for some authentic-looking accessories to include with your Viking outfit? Check out the Set of 2 Viking Age Tortoise Brooches. Made from lead-free pewter, this pair of Viking brooches has a hand-crafted design based on a Danish original using a similar construction method. Each oval brooch features a highly detailed look.

On the front of each brooch, there are seven raised knotwork-like dots with linear borders between them. The borders split the front in four major sections with a narrow border around the outside of each brooch. In each of the four major sections, there is a Borre-style beast. The Borre style was popular in the mid-9th to 10th century. The stylized detailing continues in the narrow border.

The backs of the brooches have bar pins for fastening them to a garment. In addition, the backs have a woven texture, mimicking the historical versions. These brooches come with care instructions. You can use the Nordic brooches to pin clothing together, such as the straps on a Viking apron dress. This was a popular historical use for them as was fastening cloaks.
