This piece grabbed my attention from across the room. It is very subtle and yet deliberate. The three dimensional flower (Poinsettia?) is constructed of 2 layers of petals... each one a separate piece of hammered, cut, hand engraved and formed silver. At the very center are 7 round beads of silver. The entire flower is mounted to a round disk... however; it is not centered and the tips of several petals 'fall' off the edge. SO artistic and thoughtful!

The talented silversmith that created this wearable work of art... did sign it on the reverse but I am not 100% certain who it is. From the workmanship & script initials (looks like La P) I think it was made by Alphonse La Paglia (1907-1953) who studied with Georg Jensen. He was designing jewelry in the US during the 1940's and that is when I believe this extraordinary piece was made.

Handcrafted silver jewelry MEASURES ~ 1 3/8 Inches in Diameter and Weighs a Whopping 10.6 Grams. It is CLEARLY Marked "Sterling" and the Maker's Hallmark inside of a teardrop ~ leaf? shape. It is in SUPERB CONDITION... may have been gently polished while retaining oxidized accents and Original Locking Clasp, Hinge and Pin Stem.

DO NOT miss the chance to add this exceptional example of Danish style silver jewelry to YOUR collection!
