The Irish Ring Pin was a popular style of brooch originating in Ireland but making its way throughout Britain and Europe due to the excellent trade routes taken by the Vikings.
The following designs are all replicas of actual finds from Viking-age York. These brooches are replicas of finds;
indeed the Jorvik Viking Centre proudly uses Northern Forge brooches,
for their Interactive Team; we also count Shetland Museum & Archives/Shetland Amenity Trust amongst our valued customers.
