Description of the Product

From the Bronze age onwards using horns as vessels for drink was fairly typical. From Greece to the Balkans the drinking horn spread to central Europe by the Iron Age. The surviving examples of drinking horns all have silver embellishments, sometimes extravagant ones, as ordinary non-decorated ones have decayed over time. The Viking age sees the drinking horn mentioned in both the Beowulf and the Edda as well as in the Arthurian legends of the medieval period. In late medieval and early modern times a drinking horn seems to have been a ceremonial drinking vessel, lavishly decorated and produced for special occasions. They are used to this day for such purposes for example in Georgia.

These drinking horns are all natural and authentic horns, but have been varnished with food safe varnish to comply with modern health and safety rules. The varnish also diminishes the natural smell of horn that some don't fancy. These horns can be used for drinking both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages alike. These drinking horns are not suitable for hot drinks but work fine with cold or warm drinks. Boiling hot tea for example can cause the horn material to soften and lead to the varnish flaking off. Hot drinks don't cause harm to the horn but horn is traditionally shaped by soaking it in boiling hot water. Boiling hot water makes the horn malleable.

This horn can be used and is available with or without a stand. More information about the handwrought stand suitable for this horn can be found here -Drinking Horn Stand-

Please note that all horns are unique in shape and color. You can request a color in the comment-field of your order and we try to fulfill your wishes as accurately as possible.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
