Further details:

A hooked tag (dress hook) of the Anglo-Saxon to early medieval period. It is sub-circular with two peripheral pierced lugs for stitching to a garment.

 

Manuscript's show winingas wrapped spirally around the lower leg. Hooked tags of various types are often found just below the knees of skeletons; a pair of hooks were found below the kneecaps of a male skeleton in Birka grave Bj903, and similar bird or mask-like hooks were found at 'Ryurik Gorodische', near Novgorod, 9-10th century. Small silver hooked tags were found in a similar position in a 9th century burial at Winchester, England. The location of the hooks as found in the graves make it reasonable to assume that their function was to hold up the winingas.

Original source: These winingas hooks are based on an extant mid/late Saxon hooked tag found in Norfolk, England (Portable Antiquities Scheme, Norfolk County Council, 2005): NMS-345151. They were found in Hindringham, North Norfolk, made from copper alloy and dated to c. 720AD to 1000AD. Original fragment size: 26mm x 21mm overall

Sold as a pair.

Period: 500 - 1000 AD
