Danish ARTS & CRAFTS 830 Silver+Stone Pin~Chr J~Jensen~Denmark Skonvirke Brooch

Fantastic example of Skonvirke jewelry!  Inspired by the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau movements of the early 1900s, but with a distinctive style of its own, Danish Skonvirke jewelry is characterized by naturalistic, sculptural, handwrought designs in silver, embellished with cabochon gem stones.  Early jewelry by Georg Jensen himself, which is the most highly sought of his work, dates from this period and is in this style.  The word Skonvirke is sometimes translated as beautiful or aesthetic work which this dangling brooch certainly is! 

Wonderfully capturing in sterling silver the voluptuous beauty of flower blossoms, this finely wrought pin is simply elegant!  Beautifully proportioned with a symmetricality often observed in the dangling floral brooches of this period, each silver bloom is "dimpled" in the center and carefully arranged with furling petals curved, angled and layered to give the piece maximum dimensionality and lush sensuality.  

The cabochon stone in the center is a deep shade that almost looks black, but glows red at angles in the play of light.  With the color from the stone and the oxidized (deliberately darkened) areas where the silver is deeply carved, along with the movement of the dangling pendant, the brooch combines the best elements of this type of jewelry. 

It is signed on  the back, "Chr. J." (penultimate photo) which is the mark of Peter Christian Jensen, who was active in Copenhagen from 1915-1937, and "830 S" an early Scandinavian mark for silver content. 

Measuring about 2-1/2" tall by 1-5/8" wide by 1/4" deep, it is in Excellent vintage condition with just expected light surface scratches, dirt and tarnish and an absolutely lovely vintage patina.

Striking and elegant; organic and dynamic, this pin is a superb example of the fine workmanship and romantic design that characterize Danish Skonvirke Jewelry.  While there were several workshops established in Denmark in the early 1900s and many talented artists, including Georg Jensen, jewelry from this important period is highly collectible but not plentiful and this is an outstanding example.  Belonging equally in collections of twentieth century design, Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Scandinavian silver and jewelry, this beautiful, expertly designed and crafted brooch will be a wonderful addition to any collection!
