The Borre style flourished from about 840 to 980, and is named after the bridle mounts from Borre in Norway. The style has three main elements, the most obvious being the ring-chain motif: a two-stranded plait whose intersections are bound by a ring. Secondly there is a type of gripping beast with a ribbon body whose claws clasp the frame in which it is placed, and finally a backward-looking quadruped with spirals on its hips and a pigtail. While other styles of Norse art show exterior influences, the Borre style appears to have been fully created in the Norse home lands. Samples have been found that were produced in Iceland, England, and Russia, showing the extent to which the style spread across the Norse dominions.
This pendant is a replica of real medieval pendant found in England, Norfolk, Little Snoring.
