    • Description

      This elegant round brooch is decorated with an Urnes dragon, typical of this late period of Viking art. The flowing lines and balanced twists of the dragon motif create a balanced curved effect, a very fine example of this last great style of Viking art.

      The original 11th century brooch was discovered in Wisbech in England. It was somewhat crudely made in pewter. I have smoothed the lines and raised mine in a domed shape to emphasize the curves of this beautiful pattern.

      The strong pin will work well for light or medium cloth.
