|AAGE WEIMAR, DENMARK, STERLING MODERNIST/BRUTALIST PENDANT|
AAGE WEIMAR, who worked in Copenhagen from 1937 to 1966, made this modernist/brutalist pendant. As far as I can tell, from looking about on the Web, this is a rare piece; his work is quite difficult to find (which I, of course, find satisfying . . .). What fascinates me is that Weimar created a classic pendant shape – rectangle with loop – but did it with molten, abstract, raw pieces of silver. The effect is startling; the roughly wrought slabs of silver seem to move, as if they’re about to burst free of the frame. The center strips arch up from the sides, giving it depth and movement. In my eyes, at least, this is not a passive piece of jewelry, and I’m finding that it rewards close viewing from all angles.
Measurements: 2” x 1 ½”, not including the generous loop at the top, which adds another 5/8”. Weight: 1.045 troy oz on my digital scale.
$150.00. Shipping, handling, and insurance will be an
additional $5; please note that that applies only to addresses
in the United States. If you’re interested in this piece and
live overseas, please contact me. I will not ship abroad
without insurance, which would add quite a bit to the price and
is not available for some countries. Please use a personal
check or PayPal for payment. I do prefer checks, to avoid the
PayPal fee, but it will have to clear before I ship the
pendant. Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoyed the view.

|DANISH MODERN JACOB HULL HUGE ABSTRACT NECKLACE|
became famous in the early 1970s, when
his work was exhibited
internationally and was on sale in
Illums Bolighus, the flagship retail
outlet for Danish Design. He was a
rolling stone, living around the country
and also overseas (eg Finland). He was
also a sculptor of some note, whose
work was accepted at the annual
Charlottenburg exhibition. Eventually he
settled down on the peninsula of
Djursland in Jutland, Denmark, and it
there he died in 1993, a victim of a
fire at his house. He was saved from
the blaze, but returned to rescue a
vintage car, and did not emerge again.
Everything was hand-made at Hull's own workshop so these costume pieces are of very high quality and look more like sculptures rather than just jewelry.
Hull was very fussy about retaining his intellectual property rights, as his work was much copied. He insisted that everything leaving his workshop bore one of his stamps, J.HULL or Jacob, or Jacob Hull in script or etched initials, and it is thus likely that any unstamped piece was made without his knowledge or approval.

|Vintage KALEVALA KORU PENDANT; Ancient Design; Silver Plate; FINLAND|
The design of this vintage
KALEVALA KORU PENDANT intrigued me no end, so I wrote to them
(yes, they're still going strong in Finland) and asked about
it. They said this piece was in production around 1940 -1970
and "the model is from Suotniemi in Käkisalmi 1050 - 1150/1300
A.D. (during the time of crusades)." Fantastic. The pendant is
so heavily silver-plated that the former owner said that it
tested as sterling, but the lack of sterling hallmarks made me
assume that it is actually silver plate, and that was confirmed
by KK. The solid center piece is 2 1/8" square, the dangles are
1 1/4" long, and the wrapped piece at the top, which connects to
a wrapped ring, is about 1 3/16" long and just over 1/4" wide.
This pendant gleams beautifully, and as you can see, there are
lots of raised features on it, all of which catch the light.
The chain, which has nicely patterned links, is 24" long and has
no silver marks. It's a stunning piece, and when I looked
online, I couldn't find another one. Enjoy!

These lovely sterling
silver DAVID-ANDERSEN EARRINGS are from the Four Seasons series
designed for D-A by Thorbjorn Lie-Jorgensen in 1959, and they
represent "Spring." They're 7/8" x 9/16", and all of the silver
that isn't enameled is covered in a lush gold plating. If you
look at the close-up, you'll see that the background of each
section has been stamped with different patterns -- the more you
look, the more there is to appreciate. The earrings are in
from the gold to the enameling to the springy clipbacks. Thanks
for looking, and I hope you enjoyed the view.

|HANS HANSEN, DENMARK, STERLING & SMOKEY TOPAZ CUFFLINKS|
Exquisite modern design cufflinks by Hans Hansen, Denmark. The stones are smoky topaz and simply beautiful, slightly rounded on top, and have a circular opening at that back so light shines through the stones--a stunning effect!
They are 9/16" square, the silver sides (which are almost 1/16" thick) are 1/4" high and the stone goes up almost 1/8" above the silver. The little moat around the stones is just under 1/16" wide. The stones are just under 3/8" square, they have the tiniest bit of a dome to them -- not totally flat -- and the corners are smoothed down, not sharp; no scratches on the top.
Price: $315.00 Buyer pays $6 shipping, handling, and insurance; you can use either a personal check or PayPal.
International buyer must
use PayPal only, and I'll ship by Priority Mail
International, fully insured, which will probably add
about $25 to the price.
