Vintage Art Deco 1920s butterfly brooch featuring a sterling silver brooch decorated with stunning purple to bright blue enamel. Enamel is powdered glass which is heated to very high temperatures, as the powder melts it flows. 

 

HISTORY

Near the turn of the 20th century, Scandinavian artisans looked to indigenous craft-oriented arts to inform their designs. Norway distinguished itself in the enamelled metal arts, and firms like J. Tostrup, Marius Hammer, and David-Andersen adapted the basse-taille and plique-à-jour techniques for jewellery production. Most of these enamelled pieces reflected the reigning Art Nouveau trends of bright colours and densely layered floral shapes. (Source: Collectors Weekly)
