Funeral celebrations occurred in Old Norse society, but the Vikings would wait for seven days before celebration. This day would be marked with the drinking of ale, which signified the passing of any property from the deceased. The ale would be drunk from drinking horns for ceremonial purposes. After this celebration the heir would truly claim their inheritance. This drinking horn is made from 100% natural buffalo horn. Each horn is different as per its occurrence in nature. The surface is polished to a shine for smooth drinking and enthusiast display. Drinking horns were traditionally used in many parts of the world. What is unique about the horn, it cannot be set down on a table until it is empty. To ensure guests drink all of their wine with one of these natural drinking horns but the horn you see here comes complete with an wooden rack for displaying your horn in say your office or den. *Please wash with a gentle detergent and polish with vegetable oil to keep it from drying out. And from time to time you will want to use beeswax to coat the inside to keep from cracking and the inside drying out.
