Scandinavian Viking 'Tremello Triangles' Finger Ring
Silver, 3.87 grams, 17.12 mm ext.dia. (British size D½, USA 2¼, Europe 2.13) 10th-11th century. A Viking ribbed finger-ring of Lehtosalo-Hilander's Type III. The central rib is D-sectioned. The decoration on the expanding flanges consists of a single punched tremello-style (zigzag) horizontal linear band flanking the rib and bilinear triangles extending to the outer edge. The hoop is a continuation of the central rib and extends to form a thin rod at each end which runs back round the finger to create a three-band effect. The ring is small enough to have been worn by a high-ranking lady. Reference: Lehtosalo-Hilander, P-L.,Luistari (Finland), A History of Weapons and Ornaments, Helsinki, 2000, p.123-4. Extremely fine condition. Provenance: from an old collection.
