Medieval cloak clasp based on the Pitney brooch.

This beautiful medieval cloak clasp is modelled on the so-called Pitney brooch, an Anglo-Saxon brooch of the Viking Age in Urnes style.

The elegant medieval cloak clasp is ideal as a dress fastener, for fastening a medieval cloak or cape.

The Pitney medieval thread buckle is available in brass or silver color and made of zinc alloy.

The dimensions are 9.5 x 4.8 cm.

The medieval robe clasp Pitney can be easily attached with needle and thread by using some of the many openings.

The Pitney brooch is a medieval cloak clasp that was found in the English town of Pitney in the county of Sommerset. It dates from around 1050 to 1100 and thus belongs to the late Viking period. The original is now in the British Museum in London.

The cloak clasp shows two fighting serpents in the so-called Urn style, which was typical of the late Viking Age. The depiction probably symbolizes the perpetual struggle between forces, i.e. the eternal struggle of good and evil in the world, as it was often thematized in the Viking Age.

The motif of the snake on the Pitney brooch is clearly attributable to Viking art, while the shell border and the beaded serpentine line are Anglo-Saxon characteristics. Stylistically, this medieval cloak clasp belongs to the Urnes style, the last of the seven great artistic styles of the Viking Age, and dates to the middle of the 11th century.
