VIKING HEART PENDANT NECKLACE 900 AD
Early example of the fully evolved form. Raised border and foliate trefoils to the field. The deeply cusped top heart indicative of a full transition from the naturalistic form which was used widely as well. Made by the open face mold technique. Just under 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.
