With Stylised Acanthus Carved Decoration
Burr Birchwood
Of oval navette form, this rare example is finely decorated with carved detailing to the body. The lid has an integral carved hinge which opens in the middle. The motifs are classic Viking scrolls and the work is typical of the Gudbrandsdal Region. This is a genuine early example of great quality and benefits from a really good rich colour and patina, developed over years of handling.
