This vintage brooch is a Norwegian Silver SOLJE that can be worn anytime - not just for special occasions ~ celebrations when the native costumes (bunad) are worn. Traditional ROUND Scandinavian pin features thick twisted silver wire and thinner filigree type wire designs.
Unlike most of the Solje I have owned... this one has 5 dangling Double HEARTS (point to point) with Teardrop shape dished "spoons' hanging from them (instead of round ones). ALL 5 of the solje dangles retain their ORIGINAL Yellow Gold wash. Norwegian Silver jewelry MEASURES ~ 1 1/4 Inches in Diameter and just shy of 2 1/2 Inches Top to Btm. It is in Good Untouched Condition - has not been cleaned ~ polished in many years. Retains ORIGINAL Fully Functional "C" Clasp, Tubular Hinge & Victorian Style Pin Stem. Marked on the end of the wire clasp '830 S' (for its precious silver content). I do not see any Hallmarks to indicate its Quality designer.
