This design is replicated from several examples found in Norway, Sweden and Iceland, 9th - 10th century.

Tortoise brooches (also called turtle brooches) are worn in pairs on the front of a Viking woman's dress/hangerock. They usually have a string of beads suspended between them, complete with charms & keys.

- Openwork design keeps weight to a minimum and allows coloured cloth worn behind to show through.
- Come as a pair.
- Length 108mm (4.25 inch).
- No longer available.
