Viking age lamellar belt from Hablingbo

Just finished up this lamellar belt for a customer here in Sweden!

This belt is constructed from brass sheath metal on a leather strap. The belt got a buckle with buckle plate, strap divider with a cast ring, strap end mount and a total of 92 lamellar mounts. The lamellar mounts are abut 14x6 mm and attached with two rivets each. I used a total of 210 brass rivets mount everything to the leather.

The belt is inspired by a belt from Hablingbo parish (Havor (SHM 7582) on Gotland. Found from the original are a buckle, a strap divider and some lamellar still attached to leather fragments.

This was a great project working on, I hope you like it!
