A few weeks ago we posted about our strangely extensive viking collection. Well, the only markings we had for these cool wooden toys was “Brdr. Bonfils” in Denmark, but thanks to keen eyed reader Charlie we learned that these little guys are some of Danish designer Jacob Jensen’s earliest pieces and that “according to his website they were part of a line he did for International Gift Corporation in 1958″.

Now we just wish that we had the accompanying viking ship themed box. Thanks to Charlie for the update!
