    GROUSE The originals of our grouse were found beside to an ancient sami sacrificial stone in Sweden. They were made of pewter or bronze. Analysis of the bronze showed that some of the grouse were produced near lake Ladoga in Russia. The design showes that they were specially made for sami customers. In the Middle Ages there existed an important trade with fur in the sami areas. The grouse were probably highly priced trade goods. The ring attached to the back of the grouse indicates that they have been used as pendants. Some of the original grouse were made of pewter. This metal is so easy to work with that the sami people probably could have casted the grouse themselves, using the bronze grouse as models. If it is really the sami people who produced the pewter grouses, this would be the first proof of sami metalwork. The grouses have such an elegant form, that they could have been designed by a modern designer.
