Beautiful enamel and sterling silver brooch by iconic Norwegian designer Aksel Holmsen. Based on the markings and style of pinback closure, this stunning piece was most likely made in 1930s or earlier. The enamel is clean and bright with no damage of any kind. Back and trim have heavy wear to the gold plating, looks more silver than gold. Included with purchase is a converter so it can be worn as a pendant if preferred.

Aksel Holmsen was a Norwegian jewellery maker. He trained  in filigree work with David Andersen during 1889-92. He went on to open his own silversmith workshop in 1904 in Oslo which became known for its modernist design esthetic. His son Ivar began working at the company in 1942, eventually taking over the firm in 1950. They produced traditional filigree work, as well as enamel floral brooches in the Fifties and plain silver modernist abstract jewellery in the sixties. The firm used a crossed bench tool stamp before changing to the "A.H.S" stamp for Aksel Holmsen Salg. The company eventually closed in 1971.
