Viking braided ring in electrum. Scandinavia or Britain. 9th-11th century

A large and heavy braided ring from the Viking period, made of electrum with a hoop that is formed of six interwoven wires tapering towards the back, where they have been joined and hammered together to form a solid strand.

Because of its weight it was likely to have been used as portable bullion.

Scandinavia or Britain. 9th-11th century.

Provenance: ex private collection in Germany

Dimensions: internal diameter 2cm ; weight 11,05 grammes

In perfect, wearable condition.
