Fantastic pendant designed by Toril Bjorg for David Andersen. Pendant features an oval face with black and brown guilloche enamel accents in between arching lines. The oval face articulates, as it is floated from the arms of a modernist style, Viking influenced, long sculptural bale. I have paired the pendant with a thicker braided extra long Italian sterling chain. Overall the set is in excellent condition and the pendant has recently been professionally polished and looks almost new. Any white or black lines in the photos as just reflections.

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.
