Superb Modahl bright blue Calle Lily flower brooch. Features a 3 dimensional, every so slightly gilded sterling piston and hand-painted guilloche enamel. Enamel is in perfect condition with no damage of any kind. Silver back has little to no wear. Signed and marked with "N" for Norsk Monster which was used as a quasi copyright mark by the Silversmith. Included with purchase is a silver converter so it can be worn as a pendant on a chain if preferred.

Einar Modahl was a master Silversmith in Oslo Norway. He started as an apprentice to Marius Hammer in Bergen in filigree work before moving to Oslo to work with Goldsmith Clement Berg. He completed his Journeyman's piece in 1920 with Norsk Filigransfabrikk. In the same year, he was officially licensed and established an enamel workshop under his own name in Oslo. In 1937 the business became a limited company with Odd Frisch as joint owner, until his death in 1951.
