Engraved Horn Tumbler - Vegvísir
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 try to drink from a horn that had its other end in the sea, preventing him from finishing the drink.
"The Vegvisir - that which shows the way - if this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."
This is a beautifully polished horn shot glass, engraved with a Vegvisir design. The interior is sealed with resin for the best drinking experience, and to prevent damage to the horn.
Approximate specifications are as follows:
Material: Natural horn, food-safe resin
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.
