This fabulous, and extremely rare gold washed silver enamel necklace was made by Nils Martin Elvik of Oslo. Elvik started his workshop in 1910 and I believe that this piece dates to circa the 1950’s.
The necklace measures 15¼”(39cms) long. Each link measures 14mms by 10mms. It weighs 18.3 grams.
The links are delicately shaped leaves , realistically curved with fine veining beneath the enamel. The enamelling is in a most beautiful shade of lilac. It closes with a ring clasp.
The reverse is plain gold washed silver. The back of one of the links is inscribed with ‘Edelmetall 925S’ for sterling silver and then the 'E' in a diamond shape for Elvik. The final inscription is ‘Sterling Norway’.
The condition of this lovely bracelet is excellent for its age with all the enamel intact.
I have never before come across an Elvik necklace in this lovely colour. It comes to you carefully presented in a gift box
