DRAMATIC MIDCENTURY STERLING NECKRING NECKLACE. ANTON MICHELSEN CROWN JEWELER, FOR GEORG JENSEN. RARE, ROYAL COPENHAGEN PORCELAIN DROP.
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. 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 mid-century modern design.

The white, divided porcelain disk is approximately 2 ½ inches 6 ½ cm.
