Triquetra (Relief) drinking horn
This horn has the been hand carved with an image of the Norse symbol; Triquetra. This design has been done in a relief style, where sections of horn are removed to create the image.
Triquetra (Latin: triangular) - The symbol is closely linked to the Valknut and Triple horns of Odin. Items baring the Triquetra have been found across all of the Viking world. It's true meaning to the Norse is uncertain, because the Triquetra was used by the Christian's to convey their own religious beliefs. Christian Viking kings of York would use the symbol on their coins, this shows that the Viking settlers had more than likely adopted the symbol with its Christian meaning.

All our horn products are completely handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop so please be aware there is a production time of around 4 weeks once the order has been placed .
All our horn products are handmade in our Yorkshire based workshop. All horns arrive in their completely natural state, we then sand, polish and line the inside of each individual piece. All designs are drawn on and carved entirely by hand.
The inside of the horn has been extensively cleaned and then lined using a food grade beeswax. We try to keep everything as authentic and organic as possible, which is why we opt for a deodorized beeswax lining rather than a polyurethane one. Because we use a natural wax, the horn isn't suitable for hot drinks. All drinking horns and mugs come with a set of care instructions.
Our horns come without a stand, unless specified otherwise. All our stands are made exclusively for Horns of Odin by our U.K based blacksmith and can be found in the "horn accessories" section.
These horns are made to order, so may differ from the product pictures. If you have a preferred colour horn, please leave a message with your order and we will do everything we can to accommodate.
