These anthropomorphic hooks are commonly used with leg wraps worn by Anglo- Viking cultures, also called winningas or wickelbander. These winingas are woven woolen strips which wrap around the lower leg and can be tucked or tied closed or be attached with a decorative hook like this one.
Sold by the pair, these hooks are easily attached using the two tabs cast into the underside, which can be passed through the fabric and then bent over, or sewn on using the top loops after cutting off the mounting tabs. Cast in brass.
