Excellent. Definitely need me some of those for migration era stuff.

Wanna trade? (Nobody here but us peaceful viking traders, honest...)

Oh, you're going to be popular and famous! They are truly beautiful.

I saw many versions of these for sale at Birka and some other places in Denmark and Sweden - they were too fragile to backpack around and bring home. But if you're making them and then thinking about selling them here, I reckon you'll have people lining up, me included.
