Viking Age Swedish Bone Needle Hairpin

Viking Age Swedish Bone Needle Hairpin

(69 customer reviews)

These unique little hair pins are crafted from solid cow bone and are based on a viking age find from Uppland Sweden.

Most of the large bone needles like this are often believed to be for the hair as they are typically found higher up near the head in grave findings. There is also a theory about these style of pins being used for cloaks but as far as we know this fashion declined in popularity in the later iron ages.

Averages around 6 inches long and 1/3 inch wide at its thickest.

This listing is for one hair pin.

    The item is of good quality and arrived quickly. There was a very strong smell when it first came out of the box which took a long time to go away. I rinsed it with water and left it to dry and air out for a while, and that seemed to help. I have very thick long hair and it does a decent job of holding it up, but the stick itself is a bit sharp. If I bought a second stick I think it would hold better.

    Beautiful work, but the grooves are a bit hard-edged for fine hair that breaks easy. I'd gladly pay a smidge more for them to be slightly beveled to take the sharpness away.

    Lovely hair pin. Very beautiful and has a nice weight to it. I would definitely purchase again.

    I was helped with questions I had, which I appreciated. I love these. They are definitely real bone, which means the pointed end is a little rough. It’s hand tooled, too. Very lightweight. Works nicely in my thin, fine hair.

    Very neat addition to my hair stick collection! Holds the hair well and is very striking to see. I've had people stop me to comment on it

    These needles are so elegant and smooth. The grooves really help hold the hair in place.
