VIKING WARRIOR’S RING, 10th-11th CENTURY AD, SIZE 10
Gilt bronze with the 24karat gold surface restored. Elegant form, the band bottom thickened and broadened in the Byzantine taste and flaring to raised chevrons supporting the shoulders. Circular bezel with lineal linework band, possibly runes, flanked by curvilinear motifs of Viking styling. Superior quality, suggesting an owner of some status. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
