Danish 'Skønvirke' silver brooch

Product no.: 0306

Fabulous example of the Danish artistic style called Skønvirke, (literal translation is 'aesthetic product'). It emerged at the end of the 19th century, and can be compared to the British Arts & Crafts movement and the European Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. However, the Danish style and the works produced, differed from the other European movements both in philosophy and design. The underlying motivation was to produce handmade goods which were both beautiful and affordable. When it came to the production of jewellery, the artists abandoned gold and diamonds in favour of silver and semi-precious stones. Very few silversmiths signed their work, as is the case with this gorgeous organic creation, heavily influenced by the artist Bindesbøll.

Georg Jensen Harald Nielsen Sterling silver brooch 266

Product no.: 1596

Here is a large rectangular brooch in a delicate Art Deco design by Harald Nielsen for the Danish silversmithy Georg Jensen. Harald Nielsen was the brother of Jensen’s third wife Johanne, and he joined the firm in 1909, aged 17. He helped to establish the Jensen style and the firm’s tradition for outstanding quality. In the 1920s he designed jewellery, flatware and hollowware, many, as this brooch,  still in production 50 years later. There is a notable stylistic development during the course of this decade, which started with the naturalistic organic forms of the Danish Art Nouveau or Skønvirke, and ended with the stricter more streamlined forms of Art Deco. After Georg Jensen’s death in 1935, Nielsen became the artistic leader of the company.
