An apron dress with pleats in the back, sewn down to a point just below the waist. These are deep but relatively few in number. I do not know the name of the woman who created this dress.

Unique silver 3D valkyrie found in Denmark. She is made of solid silver and weighs 9.2 grams. The silver is gilded and the pattern details in the gown and shield are filled in with a black enamel-like material called niello. She dates to the Viking age, around 800 A.D., and the design details identify her as not just any shield maiden, but as a valkyrie, emissaries of Odin who choose who dies in battle and escort their souls to Valhalla.
