Not so long ago I found three hand turned wooden vikings at
a car boot sale, I'm not at all into vikings but I sure am into
Teak and Danish Modern so I couldn't just walk away without
a closer inspection, they could be Scandinavian.
So they were. Marked Made in Denmark on the underside.
I thought they were newish since they were in mint condition
but I got them anyway because they were partly made of Teak.
I payed £1.50 for the lot.

Today I did some research.
They were made in Denmark in the 1950's by the Copenhagen
Design Ltd and designed by Jakob Jensen.
Turns out that my vikings are worth at least $85 each(!) and
they are actually meant to be children's toys.
They are interchangeable so you can change their heads, feet
and weapons around in a lot of different combinations.

My vikings.

I also found out that there's a box, I so wish mine came in one.

Original box.

Original box inside.

Betty Lou: Tackar. :)
Jag hade ju ingen aning sa det kom som en glad overraskning.
Jag behaller dem tills vidare.

Jema Rose: Tack sa mycket. :)

Daisymay: I didn't know it at the time but I'm happy I didn't leave them behind.

Andi B. Goode: Thanks honey. :)

Dorthe Mey: I think you're right.
If they actually were used as kid's toys back in the day I'm not surprised. :)

I live in Denmark and I actually think you can sell them for more than £85 here. But you shouldn't - they're sooo cute! ;o)
