Rare silver (not plated) example. Just over 1 5/8" height. Shaped as a well-delineated duck's foot with three toes and raised detail to the top simulating scaly skin. 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 feet pendants very similar to this. Suspended from a Sterling silver mounted polished leather neck cord for modern wear.
