A Slavonic salt container in a Nordic version. The tradition of making salt containers is a Slavonic custom, but this was made from elk antler, probably in Sweden, and with Scandinavian ornaments. King Olof (980-1022) married the Abodrite princess Estrid - perhaps this even has a connnection to her? The daughter of King Olof and Queen Estrid, Princess Ingegerd, was married to Prince Jaroslav the Wise in 1019.
