Simplicity, substance and style are exemplified in Norwegian Aksel Holmsen's mid century modern sunflower pin in sterling silver and pearlescent guilloche enamel. Textured center supports striated spade like petals. Brooch is slightly domed, maximizing dimension and drama.
The pin measures approximately 2 inches across with a 1/4 inch profile or dome. Weight of the brooch is about 14 grams.
Condition is very good to excellent vintage. Creamy white enamel intact and lustrous with some slight sliver enamel loss along very edges of flower's center circle. All petal enamel intact. No stains or discoloration. No dents, improper dents or crush to sterling. All petals properly aligned. Pin mechanism strong and secure.
Note: No polishing has been done to preserve the patina. Polishing, as preferred by most, is left to the buyer's discretion. Minimal wear as noted. Very good to excellent vintage.
Reverse of the brooch is signed: "NORWAY STERLING", cipher mark for Aksel Holmsen and "925S". Circa 1950s.
