That detailed replica of a Viking beaker was exactly made according to a historical model from the burial of King Gorm of Jelling, who ruled over Denmark during the 10th century AD.
The Jelling cup features a depicting with two intricate mythical creatures that established the so-called Jelling style.
The Jelling cup is shown today in the permanent exhibition of the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen.
Our replica corresponds in dimensions and design to the historical model and measures 5.5 x 4.5 cm.
The capacity is about 35 ml making the Jelling cup very well suited as a stylish drinking vessel for spirits.
In contrast to the historical model made of gilded silver, this replica is, however, made from quality, food-safe pewter.
