As much as we all like to focus on drinking our Ale and Mead, occasionally we are disrupted and forced to put our horns down. Who better to guard your drink and display your horn than this fine dragon? He's very versatile. If you're not storing your horn there, Nidhogg can guard your bottle of mead instead. He's been hand sculpted in the UK and cast in high-quality resin and hand painted for an amazing metallic finish.
This is perfect for a present as it's a complete set. The dragon and a horn that fits perfectly is included.
There are three dragons primarily represented in Norse mythology, Nidhogg (or Nidhoggr), Jormungand (or Jormungandr), and Fafnir.
Nidhogg, according to the Voluspa, is a dragon that lives under the roots of Yggdrasil (the world tree that connects the nine worlds of Norse mythology) and eats the corpses of the dead.
This dragon is cast from resin and is happy to hold your horn or bottle of mead.
To get the best fit for your curved horn allow the tip of the horn to fit within the gaps to the side of the arms.
Regular drinking horn is 0.75 - 1.5 pints
Dispatch time 5 - 10 working days
Horns are by-products of the meat industry. Our horns are salvaged from this so instead of going to waste, they are cleaned, reconditioned and turned into a beautiful vessel to start a new life. They're hand crafted of natural materials (ox or cow horn) so are likely to present some marks from the previous life or crafting process. None have a perfectly smooth finish by the very nature of the items which adds to their rustic charm. Each is handmade, beautiful and unique. All our horns are cleaned, sculpted and polished by our craftsman to a beautiful finish and are safe to drink from.
