10th Century Reindeer Antler Viking Beard Comb
“We know from Norse sagas that hair had a great significance for Vikings as a mark of distinctiveness. They took a great deal of care with their grooming and often carried combs with their swords and knives on their belts. They frequently even took combs to the grave “You might expect these to be throw away objects, but in some cases, they were superbly decorated, and all were massively over-engineered. .” – Dr. Ashby New York University
On their conquests throughout the 10th century they left these fantastic relics across continents, and this Deer antler Viking beard comb came to us from a dealer in Ukraine. Beneath the glass of this frame lies a 10th century Viking beard comb. A truly unique piece of beard history.
