Engraved Horn Tumbler - Raven

£25.00

In Nordic culture, folks raised drinking horns full of mead, wine or beer for many moons. Horns also held place in Norse mythology; when Odin returns to Valhalla he is greeted by the Valkyries bearing mead in drinking horns. In another tale, the giant Utgard-Loke tricks Thor by having him to try to drink from a horn that had its other end in the sea, preventing him from finishing the drink.

Odin, the highest god, had two ravens; Huginn and Muninn ("thought" and "memory" respectively), who flew around the world bringing back tidings to their master. Therefore, one of Odin's many names was the "raven god" (Hrafnaguð).

This is a beautifully polished horn shot glass, engraved with the Raven design. The interior is sealed with resin for the best drinking experience, and to prevent damage to the horn. 

Approximately 6-8cm in height and 5-6cm in width, these little tumblers are a great kitchen addition!

 

Care Instructions:

Not suitable for dishwasher, rinse immediately after use and clean gently with cold water and dish soap. Not suitable for hot drinks, as heat may warp the horn.

Important: Horn Tankards are handmade and are natural products. They can differ in appearance, and can show imperfections from the craft. All our horns are a byproduct of the meat industry.
