VIKING SORCERER’S AMULET C.850-1050 AD
Just over 1 1/8” total height. Bronze shaped like a duck's foot and intricately detailed with raised toes nicely delineated. A burial at Viden, Denmark contained the body of a woman of wealth and status buried with henbane seeds, which have hallucinogenic properties, and a wand as well as other objects. From these, archeologists concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck feet pendants very similar to this. Surface textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored, on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
