Viking Cloak Pin with Animal Head Terminals


    • Description

      The cloak, the most characterstic garment of the Viking Age, was often closed with a pin. I copied this animal head cloak pin from a striking example of a type from 10th century Gotland, also found in Birka.

      It's easy to imagine its original forerunner glinting in the firelight of the long hall.  Rearing animal head terminals and a solid hexagonal cross-section compliment the powerful curves of this beautiful piece. A strong steel pin ensures that it will hold your cloak securely, but it is easy to take on and off.

      Width 85mm

      Weight of Sterling Silver 145g (Weight may vary from piece to piece)

      Gorgeous Cloak Pin

      I bought this beautiful piece in Silver to remember my first real paid trip to an out of country viking festival. The cloak pin has been the centerpiece of my attire for a few years now, it is very attractive. The pin is very strong and sturdy, it is at the moment holding 4 layers of thick Vadmal.

      Unlike the original, this the piece is fitted with a "safety-pin" (lack of a better word). The pin does not poke holes in your neck or cause any sort of annoyance like some original pins might do. So if you are going for 100% historical accuracy in your attire, this cloak pin might not be for you. But if you are looking for a stunningly beautiful, well crafted and absolutely gorgeous Borre style piece of apparrel to go with your kit. This is a musthave.

      Thank you Lasse
