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