Large brooch from Kaukola Kekomäki


img_0469 Finnish Iron Age costume is getting more and more complete. I made this large brooch for cloack. Original and this replica are silver plated bronze.

Acanthus pattern is engraved. Original late Iron age engraving style is difficoult to replicate. That time engraving was probably done by hammering graver. This makes engraving line slightly serrated. Modern engravers make smoother lines.
