Hroar Prydz Norwegian Enameled Butterfly

picture of a butterfly brooch

 

This is a fabulous enameled butterfly pin signed by the well known jeweler Hroar Prydz of Norway. This is a strikingly beautiful sterling silver sage and sepia guilloche enamel butterfly. This piece, much ike many other Norwegian enamels is vermeil, meaning that it is sterling silver covered in gold.

The detail in the coloration as well as the pattern of veins is superb. Circa 1950.

The pin has a very very slight bend, which does not interfere with its functioning at all -this is a part of its original design. Exquisitely beautiful vintage Scandinavian modernist butterfly in excellent vintage condition, with no damage to its structure or the enamelling.

Hallmarks:
Signed ‘Sterling 925S’ then the ‘pacman’ hallmark for Hroar Prydz, then ‘Norway’. JEJ is below, which is for Jens Erik Jensen, the designer.

Measures:
2 inches wide
