Based on a find from Lisbjerg, Denmark, they sport a very cheerful looking gripping beast design. They are lighter than our previous version with a new mould being produced to replecate the traditional construction method. As a result, the back of the brooch is patterened with weave from the cloth used when making the mould - just like the originals.
These bronze brooches weigh about 100g each.
Dimensions: 52 mm x 82 mm
