This Hans Hansen sterling silver bracelet is part of a permanent exhibit by the "Den Gamle By" in Aarhus, Denmark. This extraordinary exhibit features 20th century Danish silver jewelry collected by Marion and Jörg Schwandt for over 40 years. The collection represents a detailed view of 100 years of Danish jewelry design. A book called "The Jewelry Box" by Jens Ingvordsen provides a catalog and photo gallery of this famous exhibit. The brooch in this shop is jewel #349 in the Danish museum collection and its photo is displayed on page 207 of the book "The Jewelry Box"(see photos).
A sharp, meticulous aesthetic shapes this Modernist bracelet that features six elongated triangular links. Eye-catching beauty is found in its razor sharp lines, which are versatile enough to go from day to night, or to accompany jeans as easily as a formal look.
The bracelet is marked Hans Hansen / 925S Denmark / 238 and was designed by Bent Gabrielsen Pedersen in 1958. Hans Hansen's silversmith's was taken over in 1991 by Georg Jensen in Copenhagen. The bracelet's design series continued to be produced by Georg Jensen and was given the name 'Peak'.
