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 comes with a leather hanger so you can easily carry the horn with you on your adventures.

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-

Small sized drinking horns holds approximately 100-250 ml. The volume measured in milliliters is an estimate as the horns are not measured individually but separated into different sizes visually with the volume and length of the horn in mind. Horns as a natural product come in all sizes and shapes and we divide the horns visually into different size-groups. So the largest medium sized is almost the same as the smallest large sized horn for example. Sometimes a very long and narrow horn can be categorized as a large even though the inside volume might be slightly under the target volume. A short and wide horn can hold more milliliters than a narrow and long horn but visually the longer horn looks/feels larger.

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.
