TROLL KEY Antiqued Brass Amulet Pendant Necklace

$30.00

A troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwell in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, live together in small family units, and are rarely helpful to human beings. Later, in Scandinavian folklore, trolls became beings in their own right, where they live far from human habitation. John Lindow notes that the etymology of the word "troll" remains uncertain; yet he defines trolls in later Swedish folklore as "nature beings" and as "all-purpose otherworldly being[s], equivalent, for example, to fairies in Anglo-Celtic traditions." In Denmark, these creatures are recorded as troldfolk ("troll-folk"), bjergtrolde ("mountain-trolls"), or bjergfolk ("mountain-folk") and in Norway also as troldfolk ("troll-folk") and tusser. Trolldom is another terms for Northern Tradition conjure arts and Scandinavian folk magic.

Antiqued brass plated (over a lead and nickel free base metal), this high quality, beautifully crafted TROLL KEY measures approximately 25 x 48 mm, and comes on a 20" antiqued bronze chain fitted with lobster claw clasp.
