Well preserved authentic ancient pagan amulet featuring a "Duck Feet" design with the centerpiece made in a form of a triangular connector/bale used to attach it to a necklace or a garment, and three hanging pieces shaped as duck feet attached to the bale. Multiple "duck feet" attached to such amulets were supposed to make noise driving away evil spirits. Exact age is unknown; similar objects found in historical Finno-Ugric regions of Russia are dated 9-10th century or older (please see the last picture). Another famous example of "Duck Feet" amulet was found with a 10th century Viking woman buried at the Fyrkat fortress in Denmark. A cautious approach would assign the piece to early medieval pre-Christian Europe, Scandinavian or Baltic origin.The amulet appears to be handmade from bronze or similar copper alloy. It has visible signs of wear due to its old age: some parts are cracked or having dents, deformed, and covered with patches of original, uncleaned green patina from the past many centuries. The amulet is a collectible object and is not recommended for wearing because of its potential fragility. Please examine all photographs carefully and do your own research if necessary. Please note that photographs are an important part of the item's description.
