Horse-Head Ale Bowl Vesterheim Magnet


In Norway, drinking ale or beer was an important tradition, and it was served at births, baptisms, weddings, and funerals, as well as holidays, like Christmas and Midsummer. Ale was poured into a special bowl to drink and then pass to share with others.

This magnet features an ale bowl from Vesterheim's collection. The bowl has double horse and ram handles and was made in Western Norway in the eighteenth century. Vesterheim 1985.097.002 –Gift of J. Harry and Josefa Andersen.
