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.
