Description

This brooch, or glibbring, has an outer ring made of heavy coiled wire. The three bars, that run vertically across the front, have masques at both ends. A loose pin runs across the front.

This glibbring was part of a large gift of items that were donated by Norwegian museums and presented to Vesterheim in 1939 by Crown Prince Olav.
