"Wave" Series created by Agnar Skrede in 1954. All three pieces are in excellent condition no damage, chips, wear or fading to the enamel. The back sides are a rare silver color with no gilding. The brooch originally had a personal engraving that has been buffed off. All have been professionally polished as well. Included with purchase is a silver converter, so the brooch can be worn as a pendant if preferred. Also included are a pair of sterling pierced earring findings, so the earrings can easily be converted to drop dangle earrings for pierced ears.

 

The company was founded in Christiania (now Oslo), Norway by David Andersen in 1876. Andersen (1843-1901) was a gold and silversmith with a keen sense of quality and the high standards of his workmanship brought early success to the firm. By 1888, Andersen was able to expand his workshop into a steam powered plant and a second retail location was opened in Oslo in 1892.

David Andersen died in 1901, his son, Arthur Andersen, took the reins of the firm at that time. Arthur instituted some important changes, he decided to hyphenate the family name to David-Andersen, and as chief designer, he introduced the use of enameling on the company's gold and silver jewelry as well as hollowware. The new line was so successful that enamelled jewelry has become nearly synonymous with the David-Andersen name. The firm has remained a family business and is now run by members of the fourth generation, Uni and Jon David-Andersen.
