Scandinavian White and Yellow guilloche enamel jewellery

Norway and Denmark both have long traditions of enamelling on jewellery. Particularly in Norway the number of silversmiths producing and exporting enamel jewellery exploded in the mid twentieth century which resulted in a large variety of styles and designs.  This week I am presenting the first of 2 listings of enamel jewellery,  with brooches, earrings, and a necklace, all in white or yellow.
3 items have been on the website before, the others are all new to the site.

All the items have been made from Sterling silver, some have received a thin coat of gold (gilt/vermeil) before the pattern has been engraved by machine (guilloche) and then being coated with enamel.

All about Herman Siersbøl

Herman Siersbøl founded his opened his own silversmith workshop in Kastrup, Denmark, in April 1945. It was his mission to create affordable quality jewellery in modern designs.  and he succeeded, creating extremely popular designs for young and old alike.  After his untimely demise in an accident in 1964, his children took over the company, and whilst some of the originality and creativity was subsequently lost, the success continued by producing affordable  quality versions of the latest trends.  Today the name continues as a brand under Nordahl Andersen of Horsens, Denmark.

Here is a broad selectionof Siersbøl's work, with necklaces,earrings, rings, brooches and cufflinks, 17 pieces in all,of which 5 have been on the website before.
