High-quality drinking cups made of real horn in a set of 4.
Each horn is unique!

Our horn cups in the Viking set each have a volume of approx. 0.2l. They are disinfected, cleaned and sealed with food-grade varnish. Each cup is adorned with a different Viking engraving, making the set a real highlight at every meal!

The cups are made of dark horn and have a gold-colored engraving with the following motifs:

  1. [_ 0127_5_0 _]Ritual Skull with Vegvisir[_ 0127_5_1 _]
    Vikings had a special relationship with death.  The ancient Viking symbol Vegvisir is also known as the "Nordic compass" or "runic compass". In an Icelandic script it says: "If that symbol is used, the wearer should not be lost in a storm or wind, even if the path ahead is unknown".

  2. [_ 0127_5_0 _]Yggdrasil[_ 0127_5_1 _]
    Yggdrasil embodies the world tree as an ash tree. It is the first tree to grow since the victory of the gods over the great-giant "Ymir", the first living being ever. Yggradsil is considered the largest and most magnificent tree of all and includes all new worlds. Its three roots go to Jötunheim, Asgard and Niflheim. Ragnarök (the end of the world) only approaches when Yggdrasil begins to feel the same.

  3. [_ 0127_5_0 _]Wolf Fenrir[_ 0127_5_1 _]
    The fenriswolf (also "fenrir") is the first child of the god Loki and the giantess Angrboda. He was born before his siblings Hel, the Midgardschlange and the eight-legged horse Sleipnir. Since Fenrir, the "monster living in the swamp", posed great danger, he was held captive in Asgard with a shackle made by dwarfs. Although the wolf has not yet been able to free himself, Tyr, the god of war, but bite off a hand. Only at Ragnarök will Fenrir destroy his fetters and then devour Odin. Only his son, Vidar, will then be able to stand up to him in a duel.

  4. [_ 0127_5_0 _]Rabe[_ 0127_5_1 _]
    In Norse mythology, the raven symbolizes wisdom. The god Odin always had the two divine beasts Hugin and Munin with him, who sat on his shoulders and told him what was going on in the world.  Because of them, the supreme god of the Vikings is also known as the raven god. Significantly, the names of the birds are Translated with the terms “thought” and “memory”.

[_ 0127_5_2 _]In sacred Norse ceremonies, drinking horns filled with mead were shared and passed around as part of the ritual, always leaving a drop for the gods at the end.[_ 0127_5_3 _]

[_ 0127_5_2 _] Drinking horns were richly decorated ritual objects and were considered much more than just vessels for alcohol consumption. Drinking Met was an integral part of the Vikings' lifestyle and had a profound meaning in their culture.[_ 0127_5_3 _]

[_ 0127_5_2 _] So when you drink mead from a Viking-style drinking horn, you reconnect with the energy of antiquity and the spirit of Odine, and maybe you too will be inspired by this sacred drink![_ 0127_5_3 _]

[_ 0127_5_4 _][_ 0127_5_0 _] Notes:[_ 0127_5_1 _][_ 0127_5_5 _]

Each drinking horn/horn cup is unique, which is why the natural products differ slightly in color. In addition to the characteristic color black, white and/or brown tones are also included.

We recommend washing the horn thoroughly with warm water before use. Please avoid boiling water, as this can damage the protective layer!

For optimal visibility, we draw the engravings with white or black paint. It is quite natural that this color will eventually fade a little. However, the engraving in itself is made for eternity!
