GOOD VIKING HEART PENDANT NECKLACE, 9th-10th CENTURY AD
Under 1/2" height plus the loop. Made by the open mold technique. Early form with slightly cusped top and deeply domed face. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Excellent. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold overlay restored and on modern gilt neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
