An early example of the fully evolved form with cusped top and nubs at the six points. Made by the open face mold with central trefoil motif. Slightly under 1” height. 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 silver surface restored for contemporary wear on a modern sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
