This lovely vintage brooch and earring demiparure is by David-Andersen of Norway. Made of sterling silver with a gold vermeil wash, the set is finished with vitreous glass (kiln-fired) enamel in a vibrant shade of sky blue. The translucent enamel is applied over a basse-taille textured surface that lends a sense of movement and depth. The brooch and earrings are part of a line of jewelry designed by Willy Winnaess for David-Andersen in the classic Scandinavian Mid-Century Modernist style for which he is known.
The pin measures 2 3/8" by 1" and the clip earrings are 1 1/4" by 1/2". Each piece is signed on the back "D-A 925S Norway Sterling" along with the Andersen scales mark and the additional mark for Winnaess, a "W" within a circle. The set is in excellent condition.
