A good example in its fully evolved form made by the open face mold technique. Broad representation of low domed form with nubs top and bottom, perhaps indicating a saltire. Over 1” width. Iconic form in excellent preservation. 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 the 24karat gold surface restored on a gilt silver-mounted polished leather neck cord (shown separately) for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Charming.
