Rare and spectacular! Designed by Karl Jørgen Otteren for David Andersen in the 1960's. Massive 3-Deminisional tropical flower pendant in shades of pinks and white.  Enamel is clean and bright with absolutely no damage or repairs, gilding is strong and bright with very little wear, except one small area on back. I have paired with an Italian heavy gilded sterling chain. Also part of the set is the matching small brooch, which is also in mint condition. Truly rare and collectible pieces!

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.
