Good example of the fully evolved form with cusped top and broad rounded sides which scroll at the top to form the upper members of a trefoil. Slightly domed section. Just under 3/4” height. The heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the Viking warrior. It is abundantly referenced in Viking literature. Surface very lightly textured from burial and professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored, on sterling silver neck chain for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
