A museum quality genuine Lapponia brooch from Finland by Bjorn Weckstrom entitled Stranger on Lo dated 1982.
This amazing modernist brooch depicts a man standing alone in an alien landscape. It is sculptural and very provocative. There is a very clever and subtle element of optical illusion. Viewed front-on the figure appears to be facing towards you, when viewed from the side the figure appears to be facing away from you. This can best be seen by comparing the second and third photographs.
The piece is signed on the reverse bearing the date mark E8 for 1982 and carries all the Lapponia hallmarks.
It measures 1 3/4" wide by 1 7/16" tall (45mm x 37mm).
On the reverse it secures with a barrel type push safety clasp for absolutely secure wear.
In total it weighs 18.8 grams so it will sit best on tween season and winter weight fabrics.
Like so much of the best modernist jewelry design it has a unisex appeal to it.
I am a huge fan of Bjorn Weckstrom's designs. They are beautiful heirloom quality collectibles and versatile accessories for any jewelry wardrobe.
We will ship this luxury designer silver brooch in a presentation box ready for gifting.
