A stunningly intact and crisp Baltic Viking bronze tortoise brooch, with the original pin and delicate pin pivot. The raised decoration is amazingly articulated--the brooch is as it was made about a thousand years ago, except for the blackish patina. This is the finest example of this type and size I have ever seen. 9th to 11th century (55mm excluding the pin).
