Danish silver earrings, with clips and with posts or hooks

Here is a very varied collection of vintage Danish earrings.  Most people did not have pierced ears until the 1970s, when the hygienic 'gun' was invented. So until then most earrings were produced with clips or screws, and these are often so pretty that I just have to buy them!  Good quality clips do not hurt the ears.
Half of this collection is with clips, the other half with posts or hooks for pierced ears.   Enjoy!

Niels Erik From Collection

Here is a collection of silver jewellery by the Danish modernist master Niels Erik From, who opened a shop and workshop in the early 1930s in Nakskov on the island of Lolland.  Both the shop and the workshop expanded and moved location several times until they took possession of a large purpose-built factory in 1967.   The business finally closed in 1996 when it was taken over by Aagaard.

The collection offered today covers all periods of production, from the intricate flower-work pieces of the 1940s to the utlra-modern designs of the 1970s, but most of the most popular and familiar pieces stem from the 1950s and 1960s.  Nearly half of them are returning items.
