Odins Raven - Horn mug

£30.00

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 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 horn mug is expertly crafted and polished. The interior is sealed with resin for the best drinking experience, and to prevent damage to the horn. Hand engraved with a raven of Odin!

Holds approximately 500ml

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: Drinking horns are handmade and are natural products. They can differ in appearance, in terms of size and colour. All of our horns are a by-product of the meat industry.
