    Re: Sensational find of mould for pendants - Viking age !

    Help me visualize this. Would there be another half to this mold, or, would it be poured flat?
    The top part looks like a "sprue" and the cross piece a "riser" which would mean there would be another half to the mold.

    Awesome find!

    Re: Sensational find of mould for pendants - Viking age !

    Congratulations on a well deserved banner! As others have said, this is definately a museum piece!

    Dane, I've been wondering how a bronze mold might have been used in the process to create ornaments which had higher melting points then the mold, such as silver and gold. From what I've read, silver, gold, and other metals with higher melting points would destroy a mold made of a lower melting point substance such as bronze. Anyway, it seems that during he Viking age many ornaments of gold were formed using the lost wax process. It might be possible that medalions such as this which a mold suggests were "mass produced", were made using the lost wax process also, but the process began with wax models formed in a bronze mold such as this. Then the wax product from your mold would go on to be used in the lost wax process??

    That is indeed a possibility, and I tend to say, that would be the purpose of this mould !!

    An other aspect could be pendants made of lead, which are also known from that time about 8-900 AD.

    It seems to me that they would not need to cast a wax piece with the hole for the pendant to hang from as that would easily be made after taking it out of the mold.
