This layered brooch is extremely dimensional and was carefully constructed of two separate pieces. The petals in the foreground stand out strikingly against the solid shade of deep cobalt blue of the petals behind and the flower head really pops. The way the darker blue. Across the petals in front adds to the sense of exuberant movement and the flower is so animated and lively, it fairly bursts with life. The brooch measures just under 1" in both directions (about 15/16" square) by about 3/16 deep.
It weighs 4.7 grams. It is signed on the back in raised letters "D-A Norway-Sterling 925S ". And the pin stem is marked "Met". The brooch is in Very Good vintage condition with just surface dirt and scratches (visible only under magnification) as well as light tarnish. David-Andersen is known for their artistry in enamel as well as for some of the best Scandinavian mid century modern design.
