Bow brooches were worn by Germanic peoples like the Goths, Franks, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and were influenced by Roman fibulae brooches.
Cast in bronze, this piece is also available with a silver-plated or blackened silver-plated finish. This brooch has a steel pin for strength.
Measures 4-1/2" by 2" (11.5 cm by 5.1 cm)
