Description

A stunning antique Norwegian Dragestil silver brooch, featuring mythical beasts entwined in the Nordic Viking style and dating to between 1900 and 1910.

This large brooch is Attributed to Magnus Aase, who started his workshop in 1899 in Bergen and was eventually one of the country's most well known silversmiths. Although unsigned this piece is an exact match to a Magnus brooch sold by Bonhams auction house in 2014. The silver mark of 830s is stamped in the center of the rear of the 'pin'.

Dragestil refers to a Norwegian version of Arts and Crafts, relating to the use of predominately Viking and Medieval designs in both art and architecture. It was used principally between 1890 and 1910, a period when multiple archaeological finds were coming to light, inspiring a renewed national romanticism for Norse art.
