2 1/4" length. Shaped as a duck's foot with knuckles and claws in full relief. 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. Made of white metal alloy. Much is known of Viking metallurgy but little of their alchemy. This alloy evidently is specific to Vikings among European cultures of the period and clearly has supernatural significance. Suitable for modern wear.
