Slightly over 3/4" height. Bronze, originally silvered, shaped as a finely delineated duck's foot with three toes with claws, the thin web between and the arch above. Large suspension loop. 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. This example professionally refurbished with the silver restored and on a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
