Modernist Georg Jensen sterling silver brooch or pin, designed by Henning Koppel. This wonderful futuristic design reminds me of a penguin walking, with it's wings outstretched. It is beautifully made piece of Danish sterling silver, and a wonderful addition to any sterling silver collection.
The brooch measures 72mm wide by 37mm high. The pin mechanism works perfectly, and the brooch is in nice condition, showing a little wear as expected with age. The back of the piece is fully hallmarked with the Georg Jensen maker's mar, sterling Denmark, and the number of the piece, 340. According to the JensenSilver website, this piece was designed in 1963.
