Cut Glass "viking's drinking horn" posy bowl

Cut Glass "viking's drinking horn" posy bowl

SKU: 9200327

Today’s offering from Auld Curiosities is a rather piece of quality glassware that we are selling on behalf of. This piece in in the form of a drinking horn, of the type favoured by Vikings, in nicely cut glass with some machine engraving. The horn is supported on two curled supports and stands so able to be used as a small posy bowl. Although it is possible to keep in the theme of it being a drinking glass, the walls of the open area are thicker than the average spirit glass would be, so it is perhaps easier to see the item as a small posy bowl. Condition is excellent however it has not been possible to identify the factory that produced the bowl – possibly had a foil label but this has been worn/washed off. The height is 3 1/8” (79mm) and the length is approximately 4 ¼” ( 108mm).


Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We determine costs to each item as opposed to having regional postage charges to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair. PLEASE DO NOT BUY AN ITEM WITHOUT ESTABLISHING THE POSTAGE CHARGE TO BE ADDED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE.

For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package.
