EARLY David-Andersen 830S Norway Bar SOLJESilver Gilt Dangly BroochHand Made
EARLY David-Andersen 830S Norway Bar SOLJESilver Gilt Dangly BroochHand Made. Managing to be both beautifully delicate and powerfully strong at the same time, this is a lovely example of the traditional Norwegian handmade filigree brooch, with its multiple dangling pendants and ornaments. Repetition of rounded, circular, tear drop and heart-shaped forms in the double frame, beading, disks and spiraling filigree is striking and the frame and filigree have a woven and twisted rope pattern which makes it very textural. This solje are the recessed round surfaces of the two dangling disks (which are slightly concave) and those of the frame that have a mirror-like effect which provides maximum reflection/refraction of light and sparkle. The brooch measures about 2-1/4" long by 1-5/8" wide by 3/8 deep and weighs 8.9 grams. It is signed on the back "830S" (note the "S" is sideways) along with the hammer and tongs that is one of the early (1888 - 1925) signatures of David-Andersen. It has the old type of findings with its simple c-clasp. The brooch is in Very Good vintage condition with just surface dirt, light scratches and tarnish as expected signs of wear due to age. It was lightly gold-plated, (vermeil), for added contrast and still shimmers and gleams beautifully with movement in the play of light. The gilding appears largely intact but has mellowed and/or tarnished some over time.
Bolesøljes or Rosesøljes, as the silver brooches are called, are worn in multiples with traditional folk costumes and this one will look great with others in your collection or on its own. It is very eye-catching and graceful with a lot of dimension, movement and soft gleam.
This well made vintage example of traditional Scandinavian jewelry will add the romance and allure of history to your wardrobe and your collection as well! It would also make a great gift, although I doubt you will want to part with it, and will come to you in a gift box, just in case. Bar solje by David Andersen to add to your collection.
