This circular-shaped pendant in Borre-style is a replica of a find from Little Snoring, in Norfolk, England dating from the 10th century. It owes its name to the namesake Norwegian town, located in the county of Vestfold, where there is a large and important Viking cemetery, with burials in mounds and funerary ships.
Decorated in Borres style, the pendant shows a typical Scandinavian decorative theme, beasts and fantastic animals knotted and clinging one to each other. The animals are depicted frontally and characterized by symmetry, plots and details, along with the triangular head, arched body, and the prehensile paws.
The pendant is very similar to six found in the Vårby hoard found in the Mälaren valley of central Sweden, with further very close parallels coming from Birka (also in Sweden) and from Norway.
The original is made of silver. This replica is hand-made of bronze.
