Beautiful, organic vintage piece!
Designed by Finnish artist Hannu Ikonen for Valu-Koru in the 1970's. This well documented design is called Renmoosblüte or "Reindeer Moss."
Drawing from the natural world around him, Ikonen's design has become iconic in modernist jewelry circles, and is highly sought after by MCM jewelry collectors. Unmarked, but this design of Ikonen's is very well photographed and documented.
Craftsmanship and patina are unmatched. Much of Ikonen's work (bronze and silver) is unsigned as it was sold only with his paper label.
