VIKING PROTECTIVE JEWELRY, 850-1050 AD

$130.00
Silvered brooch, worn in numbers on the surface of the jerkin, to provide a measure of protection against sword cuts and, in fact, were a form of armor. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior.  Slightly oval form, just under 7/8”, this example is of light proportions for a woman. It is well documented that Viking women fought alongside men. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a Sterling silver mounted polished leather neck cord for contemporary wear. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Rare feminine example.
