Very rare antique Art Nouveau Norwegian hallmarked silver gilt and enamel Viking ship brooch, by Gustav Gaudernack. Distinctly initial stamped signed on the back by maker Gustav Gaudernack. Exceptional quality. Handmade from 925 Norwegian silver, gilt finish with an enamel pictorial scene of a viking ship.

Gustav Gaudernack (1865-1914) is one of the greats, considered as Norway's leading Art Nouveau goldsmith master craftsmanship finest jewellery makers
He was born in Bohemia and studied glassmaking and enamelling in Vienna, before moving to Kristiania (now Oslo) in 1891. From 1892 to 1910 he was the leading designer at David-Andersen where his work included plique á jour of extraordinary quality. In 1910 he opened his own workshop producing Art Nouveau enamel jewellery. He died tragically just 4 years later after a failed appendectomy, however the business did continue for a while under the direction of his widow and sons. The detail is incredible on this 20mm silver gilt enamel brooch.

This brooch is somewhat different and so rare to Gaudernack's usual objects of beauty. It sought me out some years ago, because, after reading Hamlet's Mill, I'd become interested in Nordic Mythology. Gaudernack was certainly familiar with the Nordic myths from his time at David-Andersen, where one of their staples was was archaeological revival pieces.
