Here is a sensational pin by Bernhard (Bernard) Hertz, a well known silversmith of the Danish Skonvirke style. "Skonvirke translates as "Beautiful Work." It is the name applied to Danish jewelry made in an Arts & Crafts style. This skonvirke movement in Denmark encompassed the years 1900 to 1925, roughly the period when Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau were popular in Europe Skonvirke jewelry was rendered in silver by hand and exhibits hammer marks. Many jewelers working in this style were trained as sculptors and this influence is evident in jewelry worked in this style."(Elyse Zorn Karlin, Jewelry & Metalwork in the Arts & Crafts Tradition)

The pin features a foliate design with two stunning chrysophrase stones in the main body of the brooch and one in the drop section.
