A good example of a particularly intricate form. High relief with a centered naturalistic heart sprouting a beaded surround flanked scrolls forming nubs at the quarter points. A heart within a heart! Over 3/4” height, made by the open face mold technique. The iconic form in elaborate presentation and intricate detail. For Vikings, the heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the warrior. It is said that Hrungnir, with whom Thor dueled (assisted by a sorceress), had a heart of stone. A little wear from its period of use 1000 years ago! Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored, on a gilt neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
