Regular price $425.00 Sale

A very fine example in its fully evolved form. Rounded section and fully evolved cusped top supported by scrolls and surrounded by a finely crenulated border. Over 1 1/8” height including the loop, made by the open face mold technique. The iconic form in excellent preservation and an exceptionally elaborate presentation. For Vikings, the heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the warrior. It is said that Hrungnir, with whom Thor dueled (assisted by a sorceress), had a heart of stone. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored on a polished leather neck cord. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Stunning.
