This small disc brooch is a replica from a 10th century CE grave found from Birka, Sweden during the Viking age. The brooch is decorated in the so-called Borre-style. These disc brooches, or fibulas, have a needle on the backside to attach the brooch to a garment and were traditionally used to close the necklines of clothing or fasten cloaks, but also for decoration, mostly by women.
The Small viking disc brooch – Borre style has a diameter of 2.5 cm and has an eyelet on the back, so it can also be worn as a necklace. It is available in bronze, as well as a silver-plated version.
