Brilliant Green Marius Hammer Brooch

Brilliant lime green basse-taille enamel highlights this long bar pin by Marius Hammer, the great Norwegian jeweler.

Marius Hammer lived from 1847-1927 in Bergen, in Western Norway. He is known for his masterful enamel work. His work was sold at high-end stores like Liberty of London. Hammers work is much harder to come by than that of his countryman David Anderson.

Basse-taille is an enamelling technique in which transparent or translucent enamel is applied over an engraved, chased, or stamped groundplate so that the pattern in the groundplate is visible through the enamel.

Size: 2-7/8" long x 5/16" wide

Age: Circa 1910

Marks: "930S" and Marius Hammer's makers mark of an "M" with a superimposed hammer.

Condition: Very good antique condition. The small black dot visible in the photo is an inclusion original to the piece. There are tiny chips to the enamel at the pointy ends of the brooch visible under magnification.
