Staffordshire Hoard Celtic hairpin

Bronze hairpin

Staffordshire Hoard inspired hairslide – a bronze hairslide with embossed zoomorphic design and rosewood pin. Design inspired by a gold sword hilt found amongst the Staffordshire Hoard.

The rosewood pin on the back holds the hair tightly to prevent the hairslide from slipping out. Hairslides with a wooden pin require a thicker mass of hair to be effective but once pushed in remain very secure.

On the 5th July, 2009, whilst metal-detecting on farmland in southern Staffordshire, Terry Herbert began to unearth the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever found. Comprising over 1500 items in gold, silver and other alloys and valued at £3.3 million, the collection is thought to date back to the late 7th and early 8th centuries. St Justin has recreated history by producing items inspired by this amazing find.

Width: 80mm Height: 28mm | Length of pin: 117mm

Supplied in a velvet draw-string pouch.
