Here is a gorgeous 9.5" plate depicting a detailed Norse/ Viking scene. Elaborate wine border overlaid with lacey gold designs and the outer edge and an inner circle of golden raised beads of glaze. We have no idea how old these are. There are no backstamps but only the handpainted number 1847 on the back of each. You can clearly see handpainted detail, but we're not sure that the entire scene is painted by hand. We have two different scenes and one has swans so predominantly featured we decided to offer them separately, because a swan collector may want this one and perhaps not the other. I urge you to look at both, as they make a handsome set. This first scene may well represent a chosen one being sent off to battle or perhaps he has been slain and is on his way to Valhalla. The viking is on a small vessel strewn with flowers being pulled along by a very large swan, at hs waist rests the Gjallarhorn, the classic Viking horn. There are many Norse and Germanic legends regarding beautiful maidens who can change to swans. These maidens are known as Valkries and in some legends they choose which warriors will be slain and those join them in Valhalla. This Viking holds a shield with a swan on it and even his helmet has a swan. For a good read explore Norse legends involving swans. Please review the photos, as always they are the best description.

The Post Office has been BRUTAL lately so we are having to do OVERKILL packaging to prevent destruction. Payment MD buyer pays 6% sales tax. Please pay by PAYPAL. International shipping determined by location. If you are an international bidder email me for a quote. Do not pay the ebay generated invoice as the shipping is usually TOO HIGH. I will send you an invoice. Foreign buyers need to email me in advance to find out the shipping cost. Obviously I cannot ship to a foreign country as reasonably as to the U.S. International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying. I will combine items to save on shipping. Thanks for your interest! Please look at all my auctions. I pack to the best of my ability (see my feedback comments). I welcome any questions that you might have! Shipping A word about shipping: shipping involves a lot more than postage or UPS charges. We have labels, boxes, packing materials and a "longer than most" trip to the Post Office or UPS. We are very rural and the post office and UPS will not pick up our packages. So we have 10 miles every shipping day and if a buyer pays, we ship IMMEDIATELY, even if their package is the ONLY one to be shipped. We do not over charge for shipping, but sometimes if you are a lot closer than we estimated your shipping expense may be less. Please ask if you think the shipping shown in the auction is too much based on your location, and we will give you an individualized quote. If you live close by you can even pick up!
