Oval brooch, resembling in its shape the shell of a turtle, from which it takes its name. Fastened at the back with a needle. Decorated with a fanciful pattern depicting an insect, probably a beetle.

Such brooches, often called fibulas, are very popular as elements of women's Viking costumes. Attached to the shoulder straps of upper robes or as a fastening element of, for example, a cloak, they would work well as a practical decoration at an early medieval party.

Fasteners of this type were usually worn in pairs, on either side of the shoulders, attaching top robes or aprons to the under dresses. Depending on the wealth of the owner, brooches differed in size and were made of various materials.


The offer is for 1 item, but we recommend ordering two brooches (as a pair).


Brooch dimensions: 6.7 cm x 4 cm

Length of clasp (needle): 5 cm


Unique fibula - a brooch from Oldenberg

The oval-shaped brooch with images of, for example, insects, was very popular in areas of Viking settlement. Fibulas from both Germany, Scandinavia, England and even Russia have been preserved to this day.

Both the shape and the type of decoration of our turtle brooch were based on finds from Oldenburg in Germany and Danish Bornholm.
