Description

A Danish silver Skonvirke brooch in floral style featuring a central blue hardstone, possibly Dumortierite, surrounded by roses in a silver mount and dating to around 1910.

Skonvirke means “beautiful work" in Danish, and emerged at the end of the 19th century. The makers of this jewelley normally used silver, heavily chased or using repoussage work, with bird or flower motifs similar to the Art Nouveau style that was flourishing in other parts of Europe, sometimes setting pieces with small gemstones.

This brooch is stamped 800, but there are no makers marks. The blue stone is a rich colour, with a central black vein running across the surface, and smaller veins visible at the ends under magnification.
