Jensen Brooch with Synthetic Sapphires and Moonstone drops.
Design No. 153 Size: Width 1.25” (3 cm) x Length 2” (5.2 cm) including
drops. Each drop measures ¾” (2 cm).
Designed by: Georg Jensen c. 1915
Date of Manufacture: Post 1945
Note: A large number of Jensen's jewellery designs have remained popular
through the years since they were introduced and some are still in production
today. Georg Jensen's attention to detail, such as the surface patina
and clasp detail, are indications of his superior workmanship. This
unusual brooch, design no. 153, is reminiscent of a peacock's flowing
tail and head feathers. Many pieces could be ordered either in all silver
or with different stones. Another version of this brooch with green
cabouchons is on page 93 of Janet Drucker's book, ‘Georg Jensen: A Tradition
of Splendid Silver' (Schiffer).
