Historical Backdrop: Drinking horns, a symbol of festivity and camaraderie, have been an integral part of various civilizations for over 2,600 years. From the sun-baked lands of Africa to the snowy terrains of Scandinavia, from Greece to the Americas, these horns have seen myriad designs and usages based on the local fauna and cultural nuances.
However, around the 15th century, the world saw the birth of a more practical successor: the drinking mug. Its sturdy base rendered the need for horn stands obsolete, elevating hygiene standards. Yet, the original drinking horn did not fade into oblivion. Soldiers preferred its simplicity, and European nobility transformed it into ornate ceremonial articles. Among all cultures, it was the Vikings and Norse whose love for the drinking horn remained undiminished, thus becoming synonymous with their legacy.
