Gotlandic Dosenfibel Replica from the Early Viking Age

Get your hands on an authentic replica of a Gotlandic Dosenfibel, meticulously crafted after a model from the early Viking Age.

Historical Model from the Village of Boge Northeast of Visby

  • Dimensions: Our Gotlandic Dosenfibel has a diameter of 5.5 cm and a height of 3.5 mm, closely resembling the historical model in size.
  • Material: This Dosenfibel is crafted by hand from high-quality jewelry bronze and carefully patinated, highlighting the decorative motifs and giving the fibula a luxurious and precious appearance.
  • Additional Features: The Dosenfibel comes with a separate base decorated with animal figures in the older runestone style, originally from another Dosenfibel.
  • Quality Note: You can also purchase this Gotlandic Dosenfibel replica in genuine silver plating.
  • Age or Century Specification: Dosenfibeln were worn almost exclusively on the Swedish island of Gotland during the Viking Age and were an essential part of the Gotlandic women's attire from the 8th to the 11th century. Worn on the chest, the Dosenfibel served to fasten the cloak.

Usage in the Field of Medieval and Reenactment

In Gotland, a slightly different attire was worn during the Viking Age than in the rest of Scandinavia, with completely independent fibula shapes and clothing components. The typical bowl fibulae of the Viking Age attire were rarely worn on Gotland, instead, women preferred so-called animal head fibulae, which were worn in pairs to hold the dress. The magnificent Dosenfibel, Swedish Dosspännen, was also worn on the chest, where it was used to fasten the cloak.

However, Dosenfibeln are also known outside of Gotland, which could be attributed to the marriage of Gotlandic brides to mainland Scandinavians or burials there. Around 850 artifacts of Dosenfibeln are known from Gotland, often fully preserved, sometimes only in fragments. As a typical part of the Gotlandic women's attire, the Dosenfibel was used to fasten the cloak, which was closed on the chest.

The special attire of Gotland during the Viking Age has its origins already in the Vendel period, which directly preceded the Viking Age and is dated to the time between 550 and 800 AD. In the early Vendel period, the Gotlandic women originally wore a so-called hinged disc fibula or back button fibula on their chest, a hinged fibula with a distinctive decorative button on the back.

In the late Vendel period, the characteristic Dosenfibeln appear, which in their form resemble the disc originally sitting on the hinged fibula. During the Viking Age, the hinged disc fibulae disappear from the attire and are replaced by the Dosenfibel, whose character changed from an ornate fibula to a simple utility fibula.
