VIKING SORCERY AMULET C.850-1050 AD
Just under 1” height. Literally or stylistically shaped as a duck’s foot. A burial at Viden Denmark contained the body of a woman of wealth and status buried with henbane seeds, which have hallucinogenic properties, and a wand as well as other objects. From these, it was concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck’s feet pendants very similar to this. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored and mounted on a sterling silver chain for contemporary wear. Comes gift boxed with certification of authenticity.
