Bronze Iron Art Viking Ship Tron

Today’s blog post features another item in my family’s collection.

My mom purchsed this bronze Viking ship in an antique store several years ago.
It’s made by a company called Iron Art in Copenhagen, Denmark.
We’re not sure of the age, but a guesstimate would be the early 1900s.
If you know for sure, please let us know!

    My husband and I bought a ship exactly like this one in an Oslo, Norway gift shop (new) for nearly $75 (including shipping back to an APO in Canada). It doesn’t have any oars–just a rudder in the back. To us it’s invaluable, as it’s part of our Norwegian heritage.

    Hi,

    Your blog post has been extremely helpful in learning about the viking ship that we discovered as part of my mother-in-law’s estate. The model ship we have is exactly like what has been described on your blog but it has some numbers etched onto the bottom. Haven’t seen anyone on your blog comment on what these numbers might mean. On our ship, the numbers are 011-10-5097. Any experts know about this?

    Thanks,
    Janis

    I grew up with that same Viking ship in my house, both my parents have passed on now and now it sits on a shelf in our family room. Absolutely love the piece. My parents were Danish and I think it was a wedding gift to them back in the early fifties. Wish I could tell you more but that’s all I know about it. Think its time to do a little more research.

    I purchased this beautiful piece at an estate sale two days ago. I can find no identifying marks but I will look closer. Mine also has a rudder but no oars. I wonder if they were ever included. It is in mint condition. My wife is Norwegian and of course the history of it, besides the beauty intrigues me.

    We also had this identical longship in our family home-it used to sit on our mantlepiece. My father had worked in Bergen, Norway for several months and had brought it home to Scotland with him in 1965. It now takes pride of place on my sister’s antique cabinet in Canada. It is a beautiful ornament which has travelled around the world. I miss it, and all it reminds me of, but still look upon it fondly when we visit across the Pond…
