    Aquamarine & Sterling Flower 1920s Danish Brooch by Bjerregaard

    , ,
    This simple yet elegant sterling silver brooch in the shape of a flower with an aquamarine glass stone center has the smooth finish often associated with Scandinavian pieces. According to the website Online Encyclopedia of Silver Marks, Hallmarks, and Makers' Marks, this brooch was made by Hans Saugmann Bjerregaard, a silversmith in Kjellerup (central Denmark) from 1921-1937. Although it was made in the Art Deco era, I think this brooch has more of an Arts & Crafts style. It is lovely!
