Viking /Saxon planked shield
24 inch handpainted red and black Viking / Saxon shield. All my shields are handmade by me so they are true on-offs NOT mass produced
Hand crafted and painted by hand in England. Reverse is stained light walnut colour.
Perfect size for handling if being used for re-enactment, handmade with spruce planks not plywood, Viking shield with thick rawhide edging and riveted/nails (like was used by the Vikings). Steel black hammered boss is 12 gauge, 3mm thick and is an 8 inch circle, should be plenty of room if you wear a gauntlet. weighs 3.5 kilos.
Very well made piece, that will take a beating or a great wall display item.
