Superb Modahl abstract modernist demi parure set. Set features a hand-painted bright turquoise blue guilloche enamel in a modernist abstract design. Enamel is in perfect condition with no damage of any kind. Please excuse the white lines, they are just reflections because the enamel is so shiny. Silver backs have little to no wear and have been professionally polished. This is a true white silver, not gold over silver set. Signed and marked with "N" for Norsk Monster which was used as a quasi copyright mark by the Silversmiths of Norway in the late 19th through mid-20th century. Included with purchase is a silver converter so it can be worn as a pendant on a chain if preferred. The earrings are clip on style but could easily and inexpensively be converted to post back earrings by a jeweler.

 

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.
