Amulet Of Scarcity - Rare Ancient Viking 8th-11th Century Silver Thor's Hammer Runes Pendant. This amazing pendant is crafted from silver, featuring an ancient Viking design, ancient runic symbols and wonderful silver work. This Rare Thor's hammer is one of the best pieces I have ever had the privilege to present to my collectors. Silver Thor's hammers are hard to come by, however this piece has it all, it is substantial in size with magnificent solar sun motifs and ancient Runic writing on the bottom of the hammer. The wonderful artifact also displays a beautiful aged patina. The bale is solid and substantial and in order to protect the intregity of the museum quality hammer I have matched up a black leatherette adjust cord. This extremely rare specimen is a piece to be treasured and enjoyed for many years to come.
Note: Runes or Runic Symbols are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets, which were used to write various Germanic languages before the Latin alphabet.
