Strange And Had To Show

Hi Tony,

 

Definitely a nice carving; however, I don't have additional information to give you. If it were mine, I'd have him standing guard somewhere in my house. He looks like a knight of King Arthur or King Richard the Lion Heart.

 

If you have the time, please post a photo of the sword side. Where did you get the piece ? Any marking on the base ?

 

Thank you for sharing it with us.

Its patterned after the famous Viking chess men found in England, they were made of walrus ivory. After being misplaced they were found in a frmers field, when first unearthed he was horrified by them and ran for the authorities of the day.

Google them!

Tom.
