Jewelry Find of the Week - David Andersen White Sterling and Enamel Leaf Set

I've been fortunate to aquire an estate collection of fabulous sterling silver Scandinavian jewelry recently. This week's jewelry find is a stunning demi parure by Norwegian silversmith David Andersen. The design features a gorgeous leaf design in sterling silver and white basse-taille enamel. Nice gold vermeil wash over the sterling.

The brooch has the harder to find four petal design and the earrings feature two petals.

Made in the mid 20th century, this design is part of a range of Scandinavian sterling silver jewelry which is much sought after and very highly collectible. It is featured in many of the resource books about jewelry from this period.

The brooch is 2 1/2 x 1 1/8" and the earrings measure 1 x 1 3/8". Fully marked on the back with the sign of the scales and the words D.A. 925s sterling Norway. There is also a W in a circle which refers to Willy Winnaess who worked for the company in the 1950s.

This lovely David Andersen sterling silver leaf set is available from my Vintage Jewelry Lane store for $149.99. I also have listed several other David Andersen sterling pieces this week from the same estate purchase.
