Early example of the fully evolved form. Raised border with projecting quartered nubs. The cusped top heart formed by a border surrounding a second heart flanked by beaded bands. Made by the open face mold with central trefoil motif. Just over 3/4” 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, on sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
