Danish 'Skønvirke' silver brooch

Product no.: 0306

Fabulous example of the Danish artistic style called Skønvirke, (literal translation is 'aesthetic product'). It emerged at the end of the 19th century, and can be compared to the British Arts & Crafts movement and the European Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. However, the Danish style and the works produced, differed from the other European movements both in philosophy and design. The underlying motivation was to produce handmade goods which were both beautiful and affordable. When it came to the production of jewellery, the artists abandoned gold and diamonds in favour of silver and semi-precious stones. Very few silversmiths signed their work, as is the case with this gorgeous organic creation, heavily influenced by the artist Bindesbøll.
