These axes were made for the Coronation of Thorson and Svava.  Prior to being inserted in the mold, the wood skewers had a hold drilled in them to ensure that the pewter gripped them well by pouring around and through them.  Indeed, kids playing with them tended to break the sticks rather than dislodge the head.  Each side has the shield of the kind/queen, and their names written in runic symbols.
