Instantly recognisable as a Hans Hansen brooch (see designer profile), it is not so easy to say whether this was designed by Hans Hansen's son Karl Gustav, who was the chief designer from 1932 -53, or by Bent Gabrielsen, who entered the company in 1953 and designed most of the jewellery until 1969, leaving Karl Gustav to concentrate on hollowware. I tend to believe it is a Karl Gustav design, as many of his designs incorporate large silver balls. This brooch demonstrates all the classical characteristics of great modern design; simple, sleek and sophisticated, combined with expert craftsmanship and a good weight. .................................
