Brooch by Bernhard Hertz*
Impressive and large Skønvirke brooch made by Bernhard Hertz (Bernard Hertz) dating from circa 1910.
Crafted in the form of stylised fruit and leaves partially framed by sweepingly curved sides and with interlinking silver beadwork culminating in a double drop.
Set with cornelian cabochons plus two that are teardrop shaped completing the drop.
Almost certainly designed by Evald Nielsen and very similar in style to the brooch illustrated on page 146 of the Danish jewellery book, The Jewellery Box by Jens Invordsen.
Marked BH on the reverse together with the 838 silver mark.
The brooch is a fraction over 6 cm wide with a total length of 11 cm.
