VIKING SORCERER'S AMULET NECKLACE 10TH-11TH CENTURY AD
Just over 1” height. Bronze shaped like a duck's foot and intricately detailed with raised toes well 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's feet pendants very similar to this. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored, on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
