I have owned this AMAZING pin (purchased on Cape Cod) for more than 3 years... trying to research its symbolism ~ design and maker. Thank you so much to my childhood friend Torfi Tulinius & his colleague in Iceland for deciphering the Norwegian poem. "Each Norwegian man being encouraged to commit manly deeds. The scene is from Snorri Sturluson's Heimskringla - a history of the Norwegian kings written in the early 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. Gyda is a young noble woman whom the young King Harald wants to take as his concubine. She refuses and sends him away to conquer Norway. Gyda is saying to Harald: Each maid of Norway in her home is expecting every worthy Norwegian man to go forth and commit valorous deeds".

SOoooo romantic! I LOVE this 90 +/- Year Old silver brooch by NILS ELVIK active in Oslo, Norway (b. 1853 - d. 1935) . Very Medieval in design... a bit "Camelot" looking. Finely Detailed historic Scandinavian jewelry is slightly domed, MEASURES just shy of 2 Inches in Diameter and WEIGHS 20.5 Grams (~ 2/3 Troy Ozt). Hallmarked on the Reverse "830S", the letters 'NE' within a horseshoe design and below "MONSTERB" - I believe it means Registered. GUARANTEED to be in VERY FINE CONDITION - better than my photos. Retains ORIGINAL Fully Functional Curly "C" Clasp, Victorian Tubular Pin Stem and Hinge. I have not cleaned ~ polished this RARE and Important piece of Norwegian historic jewelry.

Don't miss out... this truly is a SPECTACULAR Early 830 Silver Brooch. Heraldic ~ Viking style jewelry is PERFECT for a man or woman.
