Two cruciform brooches with elongated rectangular head plate, knobs on shoulders and a head, a foot in the shape of animal head. The brooches come from a grave with two inhumation burials. Originally there were three bronze brooches and a limestone spindle whorl in the grave.

Discovery: a chance discovery made in the late 1800s. In a field, where some graves had been previously found, a grave with two inhumation burials was discovered in a deep pit with a paved bottom. Three bronze brooches are the only grave goods that survived. During World War II the objects were evacuated to the palace in Mołtowo, Kołobrzeg district. In 2016 two brooches were found near the evacuation site.

Cruciform brooches, formerly regarded as specimens corresponding to forms found in southern Sweden, are now determined as local forms showing affinity with finds typical of the western Baltic Sea and the North Sea basins.
