OLD STOCK - NEW AND UNWORN, IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING. This necklace was produced for a brief time in the 1960s, shortly after the crown jeweler A. Michelsen and the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory were bought by Georg Jensen. To celebrate this "merger" of historic "royal" workshops, several jewelry designs were produced in a collection known as Royal Bini. Production of this series was limited, and ended by 1970.
Pieces are rarely for sale and are highly collectible. This example is in original condition and has never been worn. Each piece was created and signed by two leading artists - Jens Windfeld Hansen and Bodil Buch.
Jens was a trained goldsmith from Michelsen workshop, and Bodil was a well-known ceramisist from Royal Copenhagen. Their work was characterized by fine craftsmanship, and the porcelain was fired in a number of colors, including blue, mocha and white. The piece offered here is a sculptural Scandinavian necklace consisting of a handmade split porcelain disk, on a handmade sterling silver neckring with a spherical closure.
The divided porcelain disk is approximately 2 ½ inches 6 ½ cm. The reverse side of the disk is marked Royal Copenhagen with a crown, Denmark, three wavy lines, and a special monogram combining the initials of Hansen and Buch.The sterling silver neckring, with a drop of 6 inches 15 cm. This design exhibits the Danish Modern genius which blends elegant classic lines with futuristic simplicity.
