Wonderful pin in the shape of a Scandinavian Viking ship with guilloche enamel on vermeil sterling silver; signed Askel Holmsen Norway. Outstanding piece and has a beginning sale price for a few days. Measurements in inches: 1-3/8 X 1- 1/4 and is 5.4 grams on my scale. (pictured)
Handcrafted in solid sterling with a gold wash. The red and white sales on the ship have minuscule flowers in guilloche work under the clear coat. The body of the ship has detail work as well. The flags, waves and all sterling have vermeil finish. All metal is gold washed sterling silver.
Hallmark dates this piece to before 1970. Lovely and minty!
No chips to the enamel and no damage to the clear coat. Rotating knuckle clasp is strong and holds well. The metal shows tarnish. Polishing the metal that is not enameled will remove the vermeil surface.
Beautifully made and carefully kept for you!
