Silvered bronze in the form of the iconic Viking battle axe scaled to 1 5/8" height. Bearded bit with lobed back, one side decorated with a group of concentric dot/circles. The other side plain. Hooded top socket and lined bolster. Over 1000 years old, made for ritual use, probably meant to be broken by throwing against a rock as were ringjarn as was the tradition shown on the Larbro Stone. Genuine original with surface wear and texture from burial, professionally refurbished and silvered. On a new sterling silver chain for modern wear. [ FNS4742 ]
