10th-11th century AD. Just over 1 ¼” (1.35”) height. Bronze, shaped as a duck’s foot detailed with raised claws and connecting web. 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, archeologists concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. (Among Vikings, only women were sorcerers.) The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck feet pendants very similar to this. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored, on an 18” Sterling silver neck chain modern wear. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.  Charming.
