About this item

Beautiful narwhal tusk from the late 1970s (with Cites certificate), 222cm long and approximately 4.4kg in weight, mounted on an elegant maple stand to be wall hung either horizontally or vertically. Some medieval Europeans believed narwhal tusks to be the horns from the legendary unicorn. As these horns were considered to have magic powers such as neutralising poison and curing melancholia, Vikings and other northern traders were able to sell them for many times their weight in gold. The tusks were used to make cups that were thought to negate any poison that may have been slipped into the drink. Wear consistent with age and use.
