Late example of the heart in its naturalistic form with a rounded top and a pointed bottom. Especially high rounded double border. Just over 1” height, made by the open face mold technique. The early 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 to great age character. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
