Big vintage Scandinavian sterling on enamel daisy flower pin. By Aksel Holmsen of Norway. A brief history: He worked as an apprentice for David Andersen from 1889 - 1904.
He established his own workshop in Oslo Norway in 1906 that would come to be known worldwide as a major supplier of fine enamel and sterling jewelry. His shop closed in 1971. Highly collectible and desirable now - especially in great condition. All enamel is transparent to show of the guilloche or patterned metal work details underneath.Ready and waiting for your lapel, collection, or gift giving - You will love it! Hallmark, 925S and STERLING stamped on the back. Face is has a diameter of about 2 any way you measure. WEIGHT: 18.5 grams on my scale. As with all of antique pins of this style, there isn't a lot of tension or spring back to the pin hardware - you have to physically guide and set the pin bar into the cradle.
Very small area of discoloration on the very tip of one petal - see last pic. Barely noticeable and only from certain angles. View & enlarge photographs to closely inspect fine details and to determine the amount of patina and/or wear. Most older pieces by nature normally have some degree of both and, unless severe, aren't considered damaged.
I will try my best to note anything glaring or distracting. Do utilize the scroll arrows beside the photos to allow yourself the opportunity to view them all, as they are an integral part of the description. Don't forget to check my other items.
