Decorative Dragon shield

Decorative Dragon shield

The entire front of the shield is covered in pig skin with 4 decorative metal dragons, large steel boss aluminium rim edging with steel studs, 4 sheep skin pieces have also been added to enhance the appearance. Comes with hooks on rear for hanging although these can be removed if preferred.
The leather two piece support (grip) on the back was used in the later Viking period.


Once again, this shield, although very heavy,(approx 5kg) was not meant for battle

Metal shield rims were not common place however some have been found, Vikings preferred leather and often a shield may be covered in linen.
I can make custom made shields if you have a specific design, size, style in mind, just ask.
