1906 DAVID-ANDERSEN Sterling+Enamel Flower PinEARLY Signed BroochNorwayCOLORS. Exquisite enameling in breath-taking shades of violet purple, deep green, sunny yellow and orange! This lovely enamel on sterling silver brooch or pin is by "the Norwegian Georg Jensen" as Christie Romero called the well respected Norwegian silver makers David-Andersen in. And it bears the old hammer and tongs Andersen signature and dates from around 1906 (the registration date on the back). The piece is highly detailed and the enameling is superb, in brilliant rich hues that, while contrasting sharply, are also quite harmonious together.

At the center of the slightly concave flower head is an orange circle framed by a 6-point yellow starburst that echoes the 6 petals of the flowers, giving the brooch a palpable sense of exuberant movement so it fairly bursts with life.
