The third gift — an enormous hammer. Illustration from page 88 of In the Days of Giants: A Book of Norse Tales written by Abbie Farwell Brown, illustrated by E. Boyd Smith, Houghton, Mifflin & Co., 1902 CE.

The dwarven sons of Ivaldi forge the hammer Mjolnir for the god Thor while Loki watches on. On the table before them sits their other creations: the multiplying ring Draupnir, the boar Gullinbursti, the ship Skíðblaðnir, the spear Gungnir, and golden hair for the goddess Sif.
