Aksel Holmsen Earrings
Pair of silver-gilt drop earrings with a long teardrop shaped outline, detailed within the outer frame with an ornate scrolling design and plique-à-jour enamelled in shades of blue, red and gold.
This main element is suspended on a short length of chain from the original screw type fittings. We have not altered these to wires as the maker’s marks are on the back of the screws. However, this alteration could be done if preferred for a small extra charge.
Dating from circa 1920, the earrings measure just a fraction over 5 cm in length.
Aksel Holmsen was a Norwegian jeweller and enameller who served his apprenticeship under David Anderson for whom he worked from 1889. He opened his own workshop in 1906.
