Small example, silvered bronze, under 1 1/2” (1.44”) height. Circular top with triangular terminals with triple raised “toes” depicting webbed duck’s feet. 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. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck’s feet pendants very similar to this. Among Vikings, sorcery was practiced by women only. It was specifically considered to be unmanly.  Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored and suspended from an 18” Sterling silver neck chain. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
