Beast and raven, Viking sword chape (Type 1b2), 74 mm, attributed to the Scandinavian Borre style (Janowski & Fudzinska 2006).

An example of a similar chape was found at Gdynia Oksywie http://www.othalacraft.com/sword-chape-from-gdynia--oksywie-poland.-p106.html ).
A partial specimen of this form of chape, also found in Poland, is illustrated here: http://www.magdaw.co.uk/MWarchaeo.html . A stylized fan-tailed raven can also be interpreted in the design.
