Description

Viking Age (800-1050 AD).

Brooch made of a copper-alloy bronze which was then gilded. Found in a churchyard in Pitney, Somerset, England and stylised in the Urnaes fashion, named after the wood carvings on the church of Urnaes, Norway. Typical of this style, the motif depicts a fantasy animal fighting a snake, and is often interpreted as Christianity in battle against Paganism - the latter of course represented by the serpent.

An ideal gift idea for Her.

Width: 45mm.

Individually numbered and hallmarked. A booklet detailing the age and the place of origin of the original is included.
