Description of the Product

During the Viking Age, it was common to carry one or more hygiene pendants attached to a chain or leather strap. They could have been attached on the bowl brooch at belt level so they were at hand for use whenever needed. In addition to an ear spoon, nail cleaner, tweezers or an awl, a key or a needle box could also be attached in this way.

Ear spoons were the "Q-tip" of the people in the Viking Age. Ear spoons have therefore been found in many different forms everywhere in the settlement areas of the Vikings. This specific ear spoon is a replica of an ear spoon found from Birka, Sweden and it dates back to 10th century.

Made of bronze.

Ear spoons and tweezers made of bronze have been used for personal hygiene since the Bronze Age. For Egyptians and Romans, these were even a part of the medical instruments, and they were also widely used by Germanic and Viking peoples as indispensable components of hygiene and beauty care.

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.
