New Viking Antiquities 

 

ANT 1. Excavated Viking Warrior’s Battle Sword, Ca. 850-950 AD.

Verbal provenance of Northern Germany (possibly near the Viking Trade Center of Haithabu) and from a London UK private sword collection. Condition is superb for being excavated which points to it being found long ago in a pagan cremation grave or barrow. Textbook example of a Petersen Type V Viking Sword. Note gold wire inlay in cross guard. Pommel most likely had the same design but it has been obscured through ground action. Viking swords in any condition are extremely rare. Blade retains it’s temper and sharp edge. When you handle this sword the first thing that surprises you is how light and balanced it is. A true killing machine in the hands of a skilled warrior. Viking Swords were given names such as “Snake of the Byrnie”, “Leg Biter”, Leech of Wounds”, “Flame of Battle and “Hole Maker”. These swords were well made with most of their blades being imported from the Frankish Rhineland. The Vikings became prolific traders of these fine swords along with their slaves, amber and furs. There is a wide variety of intricately crafted hilts influenced by Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, Irish and Eastern European designs. One can only imagine the scenes of carnage and chaos that were witnessed by this amazing Viking Weapon.

ANT 3. Gilt Bronze Viking Drum Brooch ca. 9th-10th Cent. AD.

The upper face has cruciform bands, each with a knotted serpent motif, the quadrants filled with a knot and a facing male mask to each angle. Separate base plate has basketwork design with intact hinge pin and catch plate. These were status symbols for wealthy women and were used to pin a “Hangerok” Dress or shawl at the shoulders, possibly worn in pairs like the “Turtle” Brooches. Provenance of a long time British collection, previous to that, it was purchased on the German art market. For reference see “Viking Art” by James Graham Campbell, page 31, fig. 23 for a similar example that was found at Valla, Gotland (Sweden).

ANT 9. Viking Pendant made from an Abbasid Caliphate Gold Dinar ca. late 9th Cent. AD.

In the East, the Vikings exchanged furs, slaves, Baltic Amber and weapons to the Arabs in exchange for gold and silver coins. The silver coins or “Dirhems” have been found in hoards as far West as Iceland. The much rarer gold Dinars were used exclusively for jewelry and adornment. This one is in great condition and was carefully crafted into a pendant by the Vikings. This piece surfaced at London auction house but exact provenance is uncertain.

A beautiful work of art and a large piece, about 2″ in length. Solid silver. Flawless condition with all filigree beads intact and of various sizes. The Lunula is an ancient and powerful symbol, thought by Slav and Scandinavian Women to ward off the “Evil Eye” and to protect them from sickness. Fertility was a main attribute of the Lunula as well as strengthening of marriage ties and abundance of crops. This ostentatious piece is unusual in its size and decoration and was worn as a status symbol by the wife of a great and successful warrior. Found at the site of a Viking trade settlement along the Dneiper River, Ukraine. For reference, see “Vikings Life And Legend” by Gareth Williams page 21 for a similar example excavated in Runesberga Gardslosa, Oland Sweden.

$1250.00

 

ANT 13. Solid Silver Viking Neck Ring or “Torq” 10th-11th Cent. AD.

An impressive and amazing piece of Viking artwork. The Scandinavians were master metalworkers and the finely interwoven strands on this rare neck ring are a stellar example. Note the “circle and dot” decoration at the terminals. This collar or “Torq” is heavy and weighs oz. and measures in diameter. Condition is superb, just as it was found. The account of Ibn Fadlan (a Muslim emissary to the King of the Bulgars) HERE. describes for us in detail the use of these neck rings “The women wear neck rings of gold and silver, one for each 10,000 dirhems which her husband is worth; some women have many”. Silver rings and bracelets of this type are known to be found in Viking treasure hoards in Iceland and as far east as Russia. This one was recently found in a Viking settlement and detailed information including a photo of it coming out of the ground will go to the buyer. For reference, see “Vikings Life And Legend” by Gareth Williams page 126, fig. 3 for an identical example excavated in Troms, Norway.

This is a textbook piece of Viking Jewelry. 10th Century AD.

$3500.00

 

ANT 17. Dug Viking Chieftain’s Stirrups and Bit.

This wrought iron set was very likely found long ago in the pagan cremation grave of a great chieftain. Only very high status warriors or Jarls rode on horseback. The deceased Jarl’s horse was slain and cremated as well as favored slaves and other animals. All to join him in the paradise of Valhalla. The iron is transformed or annealed during the burning process and resists oxidation. This explains the remarkable preservation in many cases of pagan age iron objects and weapons. With the spread of Christianity, burials became inhumations and grave goods were no longer necessary for the afterlife. Baltic Coast, Poland. 8th-11th Cent. AD.

$450.00

 

ANT 18. Dug Medieval Two Handed Broadsword ca. 1250-1350 AD.

Dug recently in Eastern Europe, a very impressive relic of medieval warfare. Most likely broken in battle. Note heavy wheel type pommel. In the days of this sword, war was a very personal and up close affair and only a landed knight would have carried a weapon like this.

ANT 21. Silver Viking Valkyrie or Skjaldmaer (Shield Maiden) Amulet.

Extremely rare and in fantastic condition. A similar one has been found in Wickham England and there is a near identical example in the National Museum in Denmark. Several examples of these female amulets have been found by detectorists in all parts of the former Viking world. Solid silver construction with pierced attachment lug on reverse. In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (/vælˈkɪəriˈkrivɑːl-, ˈvælkəri/;[1] from Old Norse valkyrja “chooser of the slain”) is one of a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live. Selecting among half of those who die in battle (the other half go to the goddess Freyja‘s afterlife field Fólkvangr), the valkyries take their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors become einherjar (Old Norse “single (or once) fighters”[2]). When the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead. For reference, see “Vikings Life And Legend” by Gareth Williams page 79 for several examples. Provenance: London antiquities art market, Ex. German private collection acquired before 1990.

 ANT 27. Dug “Lunula” Amulet.

Great condition and cast in bronze. These amulets were worn by Nordic and Slavic Women and are of very ancient origin. To start researching the protective power of this ancient jewelry, it is necessary to provide a proper definition. Lunula means a small moon. It is a female symbol dating back to the end of the Bronze Age. Women commonly wore the Lunula necklace and used the Lunula elements in various ornaments presenting their devotion to the moon which was a symbol of female fertility. This type of jewelry was of great popularity among Slavic and Viking women. People wearing this symbol hoped to attract luck, happiness and to protect themselves from evil forces, like the Evil Eye and demonic creatures.

ANT 33. Dug Anglo Saxon “Horse Head” Brooch. 5th-6th Cent. AD.

A relic from the very first days when Saxons, Angles and Jutish Pirates overran the undefended Roman Province of Britannia. They drove the Romano Britons into a corner of the island that became Wales. This invasion came in waves and was accompanied with great slaughter and plundering. The Pagan Germanic tribes settled across the island and under the Christianizing influence of the Catholic Church developed a peace loving society with high levels of art and learning. In the year 786, there is an entry in the Anglo Saxon Chronicle that mentions three Longships coming ashore;  

“Here Beorhtric [AD 786-802] took King Offa’s daughter Eadburh. And in his days there came for the first time 3 ships; and then the King’s Reeve (Sheriff) rode there and wanted to compel them to go to the king’s town, because he did not know what they were; and they slew him. Those were the first ships of the Danish men which sought out the land of the English race.” Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (Winchester MS).

Here is the first contact of what would become two and a half centuries of savage Viking attacks and settlement ravaging the whole island. It seems that the blood shed in the Anglo Saxon Conquest came to fall upon their heads when they least expected it and in greater measure. This Pagan Anglo-Saxon Bronze Brooch is remarkable for it’s size, 5.5″ as well as the fantastic green patina and decoration. They were worn in pairs by women and pinned their cloaks at the shoulders. Found by a detectorist in Kent. No repairs or alterations.

ANT 35. “Vikings” Reference Book by Tai Larsen.

This great book has been sold out by Amazon and is very hard to get. I have twenty copies that I got directly from the author who has hand signed them all. This book has great pictures of dug Swords, Axes, Amulets, Spears, Arrow Points, Horse Trappings, Belts and much more. Tai composed his own Scandinavian Saga influenced poetry to accompany the pictures. Paperback format and 104 richly illustrated pages. Great stuff and perfect for an introduction to these relics unlike the overwhelmingly exhaustive and academic works by Holger Arbman which cover the excavations at Birka in Sweden. I highly recommend his works if you can find them and want to take your interest further. Two other great introductory volumes I will recommend are “The Viking World” and “Viking Art” both by James Duncan Campbell.

$55.00 ea.

$225.00

 

ANT 37. Excavated set of Viking Slave Shackles ca. 9th-11th Cent. AD.

Don’t ever think for a moment that Africans (called “Blue Men” by the Vikings) were the only slaves. The Vikings were prolific slave traders and the muslims had an insatiable appetite for fair blonde women and boys. The Vikings didn’t trade their own women but captured their prey in raids from Ireland to Russia. The Slavic Tribes were their main source of slaves and some scholars say that is where the word “Slave” originates. This set of shackles is in good condition and still retains it’s primitive lock. Found in a Viking Settlement near Kiev, Ukraine.

$295.00

 

ANT 38. Excavated Silver Viking Axe Amulet.

Well documented in Viking hoards, burials and trade settlements. This type was worn around the neck attached to a larger silver neck ring or bracelet, often in conjunction with Thor Hammers, Christian Crosses and snake amulets. The Axe Amulet is found in several forms and thought to possess magical and protective properties. Scholars associate them with the Slavic Cult of Perun and the Scandinavian Cult of St. Olaf. This example is in very good condition and was found in Ukraine. 10th-11th Century AD. See this article for more information on these prized artifacts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axe_of_Perun

Early bronze type with traces of yellow or cream colored enamel in recesses. Superb condition. Excavated at a Viking trade settlement in central Ukraine. 10th-11th Cent. AD.
