Regular price $210.00 Sale

Gilt bronze. 7/8” early domed form without the top cusp as used later. Rounded raised border surround and quartered nubs, the significance of which is now lost. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for modern wear.
