This is no ordinary Viking ship by the Norwegian master Ivar Holt. It is the stuff of heroic tales, sagas and myths, with the wind in its sail and the ensign flying proudly! This is a guilloched enamel piece, and as is often the case, the unenamelled sections have been treated with a vermeil (gold wash). Here the gold is featured in the beading along the side of the ship, contrasting with the green or blue trims.
CONDITION Excellent, no loss to enamel, but some irregular application along the top and the bottom left of the sail. No other visible damage. Straight pin and c clasp
MARKS 925S H in circle, STERLING NORWAY
SIZE The ship stands 1.3" (3.5cm) tall
