Are you liking my Viking?

There is a really nice glass shop in Rye which sells a lot of 60's and 70's items, including Kosta Boda Scandanavian glass which we both really like. On one of our yearly trips to Rye to drop off some of my artwork to Rye Art Gallery we called into the glass shop and found this striking and stoic fellow, staring moodily into the middle distance. Perhaps he was wondering how he could go about his pillaging without a longboat to get about in....

Well as luck would have it, we hadn't walked more than 5 minutes down the road when we called into Rye village hall to check out a bric a brac sale that was going on, and lo and behold almost as soon as we walked in we spotted his long boat....

We were very happy to be able to reunite them. Here they are, together again! ready to go off for a quick spot of pillaging before tea time. (Once the Viking has finished his brooding that is)
