Fantastic solid and heavy sterling silver brooch in a classic retro modernist design. Overall it is in excellent condition with little to no wear. It has been professionally polish and looks amazing. Face is a high gloss smooth finish. Hard to photograph because it's so shiny. Pictures don't do this piece justice. Lovely and fun collector's piece. Included with purchase is a silver converter so it can be worn as a pendant if preferred.

Danish craftswoman made a major contribution to Danish design in the 1950's. Karen Strand (born in 1924) was one of these women. She was one of the first to take advantage of the classes at the College of Jewellery and Silversmithing in Denmark. In 1953 she won the first prize in the Jeweller's Competition . After this she joined the A Dragsted workshop in Copenhagen where she eventually became its director. A popular design was a 1956 parure based on the lyre, followed by a more elaborate necklace design of two rows of silver petals. She also designed brooches for Anton Michelsen such as the 1953 - 55 sterling silver Persian palm motif brooch and the paisley brooch.
