I love this brooch! It is made from sterling silver and guilloche or patterned enamel.
It was made in Norway. The polar bear is an arctic white with the background of blue and gold featuring a setting sun, glinting with faint pink onto the white coat of the polar bear. The enamel is beautiful and the 'deconess' is fab..
It was designed in the 1920's by Andreson & Scheinpflug, a well known and widely collected jewellery company that operated in Oslo in Norway. The brooch is marked with the company's trademark TYA and a sterling silver mark.
For the Deco enthusiast, or a stylish Phryne Fisher type, it would make a wonderful addition to their collection.
The brooch is a small masterpiece. It measures 4.2 cm across, and 1.9 cm high.
