Click the picture to enlarge

The Oseberg Queen was buried with her lavishly decorated ship 834 AD. She brought with her a large range of useful artifacts: a cart, four sledges, several horses, tent, food and assorted farming and kitchen tools. She was well prepared for her journey into life after death.

Among the the farming tools were a dungfork and several spades. Two of these have been miniaturized perfectly suited for use as as a salad serving set. They correspond to the originals in shape, only smaller. The length of the wooden salad serving set is approx 29 cm.

The original farming tools are displayed in the Vking Ship Museum in Oslo.
