HOLT Norway Gilt Sterling+Wht Enamel PARURE-Necklace Bracelet EarringsHolth SET
HOLT Norway Gilt Sterling+Wht Enamel PARURE-Necklace Bracelet EarringsHolth SET. Stunning PARURE -- Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings -- ALL in EXCELLENT vintage condition! This necklace has panels along its entire length, not just in the center. As does the more often seen version. Interesting shapes, sensational white color and dynamic patterns in the exquisite guilloche´ enameling abound in this vintage Norwegian Modernist Set. Apologies for the photos, which do not begin to portray its beauty or the true hue of white. It is rich and creamy with a satiny sheen that is just beautiful. Set in gold plated sterling silver (vermeil), the elements have sensually curving, bulging teardrop shapes. This, along with the use of negative space, in the gilded "wire" openwork that partly frames the bulging end of the teardrops, makes for an interesting outline against skin or fabric. The lively patterns underlying the enamel of angled parallel lines, interrupted by star (or sun) bursts exploding along the edges of the panels is dynamic and eye catching, providing illusions of texture, depth and motion. The necklace measures about 5/8" wide by a little over 15" long, extended and lays beautifully on the neck, with the panels all around. The bracelet length is 7-1/4. Both terminate in secure spring ring clasps. The clip-on earrings measure about 1" by a little over 1/2". They are properly right and left facing and, with the necklace, will frame your face beautifully. Interestingly, they do not have the gilded "wire" openwork of the other elements. All pieces are signed on the backs "925 S" along with an "H" in a circle for Ivar T. Holt (or Holth) as well as Sterling Norway.
All pieces are in Excellent vintage condition with no apologies other than the tarnish expected due to age. With the clean lines and cool design that characterize the best Mid Century Modern Scandinavian silver, this elegant PARURE with its effective design can hold its own with the best Studio jewelry of the same period. The set will be a superb addition to your collection and your wardrobe as well.
Not just collectible, it is striking and wearable, managing to be at the same time both tailored and feminine as well as casual and dressy. It will go with everything; night or day, work or play, taking you in style from your winter whites to your summer nights. And the white is a knock-out with a tan! In Excellent vintage condition, it would also make a terrific gift, although I doubt you will want to part with it and will come to you gift boxed, just in case. A fabulous signed Norwegian sterling vermeil and rich white enamel PARURE to add to your collection! Please see our other listings for more great vintage jewelry, including Scandinavian.
