The design on these Viking turtle brooches are from a design element from St. Ninian's Isle in Scotland. Vikings took designs from all their conquests and added them to their designs, and we have done the same! Turtle brooches like these were worn by Viking women on their apron dresses.
Cast in bronze, this pair of brooches is also available with a silver-plated or blackened silver-plated finish. These brooches have steel pins for strength.
Each brooch measures 3-5/8" by 2-3/8" (9.2 cm by 6 cm) and sits 5/8" (1.5 cm) tall.
