VIKING SORCERER'S AMULET

A1336

Regular price $385.00 Sale

10th-11th century AD. 1 ” height plus its original suspension link.. Bronze sculpted to an intricately detailed duck’s foot. 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, it was concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck’s feet pendants very similar to this. Fine example, professionally refurbished and resilvered on a braided polished leather neck cord for modern wear.
