LARGE ANTON MICHELSEN BROOCH Spectacular gilded sterling brooch by Anton Michelsen in wonderful condition.
This is big! It measures approximately 8 cm in length and weighs 14.8 grams on my scales. It is made from solid sterling silver but gilded in a rich gold colour.
I cannot see any wear, I doubt this brooch has been worn much if at all.
The piece is marked on the back with the Anton Michelsen triangular makers mark AM under a crown and STERLING DENMARK in a rectangular cartouche. There is a rollover clasp which works well.
“Anton Michelsen was the founder of one of the most important jeweller families in Denmark. He established his own company in 1841 and after a short while, the company received its first commissions from the Royal family.
For four generations, the company made jewellery of the highest quality. Silverworks from A. Michelsen, now part of Georg Jensen, are highly prestigious.”
