Just Andersen Denmark Sterling Silver Leaves Brooch & Earrings Set - Circa 1930s Measurements: Brooch 2.75"L x 1"W (6.99cm x 2.54cm) Earrings 1L x. Has recently been professionally polished and look amazing! Just Andersen started making jewellery In his own workshop in 1918, having received a kickstart from Mogens Ballin with a 3 year project to decorate an altar in Copenhagen.
He produced beautiful figural sculptures in gold as pieces of jewellery, but they were of course very expensive, and so he also started working in silver and pewter and "Disko", an alloy which he discovered himself. His pewter hollowware from that period commands very high prices today. At the end of the 1920s, Just Andersen started to move from individual'unica' pieces to a more streamlined production method, collaborating with a Swedish goldsmith and introducing pieces inspired by the simple forms of Nordic pre-historic jewellery.
Karen Strand, Arje Griegst and Jane Wiberg were all apprentices in the post-war period. The company closed in 1973. (Source:Vibeke Marssoe) I LOVE Offers! No REASONABLE offer will be refused!
