Rare DAVID ANDERSEN
Antique Silver, Gold & Enamel
SOLJE Brooch, 14.2 g, c1900Stunning silver and enamel „Solje“ (Søljer or Slje) brooch by David Andersen,
probably dating from approximately 1900, perhaps even earlier.This is an exquisite example with a soft gold wash, formed of
two dome shaped buttons, joined by a filigree ornament.The centres of the buttons are decorated with finely enamelled “star” shapes
and tiny leaves in turquoise, royal blue, black, coral red and soft orange. Filigree, braided bands and delicate flowers sweep around
the buttons, completing this beautiful design.Lovely solid weight, with an eye catching size. Immaculate workmanship - excellently crafted and of high quality -
it would be a wonderful gift and certainly a very fine addition to a collection!Size (without pin): 5 x 2.4 x 1 cm (1.97 x 0.94 x 0.39 inches)Weight: 14.2 gHallmarked: David Andersen anvil symbol
(used from 1888 until 1925), 830 Condition: this is in very good condition, with only
the slightest signs of use, commensurate with age. The turquoise drops around the central stars have some
very, very tiny nibbles and the enamel in one of the
star tips is missing (see photos 3 & 5) but this would be almost
invisible when the brooch is worn. The pin is very slightly misshapen, but no other damage, dents or dings. The brooch hasn’t been polished in any way, as it has
acquired the most beautiful patina over the many years.Very interesting and useful information regarding the purpose and
tradition of Solje (Sølje or Slje) brooches can be found under the following send my items immediately upon receiving payment and
am happy to combine shipping wherever possible!The a/m postage fee includes a signed-for and insured tracking service.Kindly note that I can only accept PayPal from UK and
