True heart form with cusped top. Central finely defined pentafoil motif. The edges undulating to repeat the shape. Variant foliage motifs were a very popular Viking motif. 7/8” height including the loop, cast in an open-faced mold as can be seen from the back. That method is characteristic for the period, 1000 years ago. 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. Professionally refurbished with a gold overlay restored. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
