Roman Brooch Collection


Roman Brooch Collection A set of five Roman fibula brooches framed in bronze

These beautiful little artefacts are known as fibula brooches. For the Romans, these were like safety-pins or toggles (fibula actually means clasp), where they would use them to pin their tunics, shifts and cloaks.

There are hundreds of different types of Roman fibula brooch - often intricately enamelled and decorated. This frame contains a set of five, ranging in age from around 2000 - 1600 years old. They include a dolphin fibula (named because it is shaped a little like a breaching dolphin), an enamelled disc brooch, a stunning 4th-century trumpet brooch, and one of the nicest first-century bow and fantail brooches that has ever passed through our hands.
