Replica of an elegant fibula based on an original find from the Middle Ages.
This beautiful replica of a fibula for historical clothing in the High Middle Ages comes from an Austrian model from the treasury of Fuchsenhof.

This medieval jewelry was widespread in the High Middle Ages, among others.

In the Middle Ages, this fibula was a small brooch worn by men and women in much of Europe in the 13th and 14th centuries to close the neckline of medieval clothing.

The medieval Fibula is made of pure bronze and silver-plated in bronze.

Size of the fibula: 3 x 3 cm.

The discovery of the Fuchsenhof dates back to around 1270 near Freistadt in the Mühlviertel in Upper Austria. It is exhibited today at the Schlossmuseum Linz. In 1997, this high-medieval silver treasure was found at the Fuchsenhof farm while plowing a field. It mainly consists of coins and jewelry. Supposedly, a goldsmith or money dealer buried his property there in the course of the chaos of the time. With 366 pieces of jewelery, the Fuchsenhof treasury is one of the greatest jewelery finds from the High and Late Middle Ages. In addition to coins, there were mainly finger rings and brooches, but also costume elements and raw materials for making jewelry.
