Engraved Horn Tumbler - Triskele

£25.00

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

The Triskele symbol consists of three interlocked spirals. It is widely regarded as one of the oldest Celtic symbols; the spirals represent the Celtic interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky. The symbol is also thought to represent the three worlds: spiritual, physical, and celestial. 

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.

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

Please note: natural products may vary in appearance and size. All of our horns are a by-product of the meat industry. 

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.
