Fantastic sterling silver and amethyst very large and hefty modernist brooch by the iconic Bent Knudsen. It has recently been professionally polished and is in almost new condition. There is no damage of any kind. Very shiny and hard to photograph, please forgive the lines and reflections. Impeccable piece! Included with purchase is a converter so it can be worn as a pendant on a necklace if preferred.

 

Bent Knudsen (1924-1997) trained at Carl Cohr in Fredericia and then worked for the Hans Hansen smithy until 1956 when he started his own workshop with his wife Anni (1927-). Their creations, always marked Bent K, and clearly inspired by Bent's time at Hans Hansen, exhibited the understated, clear and simple lines that are the hallmark of Danish Modern. Their work does not appear frequently on the market, and is much sought after. Whilst the workshop existed until a few years ago, production of silver items was gradually phased out during the 1970s, when another of their passions, the paper cut, became their major concern and this has enjoyed worldwide acclaim and sales ever since.
