EARLY GEORG JENSEN LABRADORITE 830 BROOCH

Part of the Vintage Georg Jensen Jewelry Collection, this antique estate brooch 165 is a cherished and iconic piece from the earliest days of Georg Jensen's craftsmanship. Bearing marks dating between 1915 and 1927, this brooch's age makes it highly sought after among collectors. Adorned with five cabochon labradorite stones, it beautifully embodies the unique fusion of Kristian Mohl-Hansen's initial designs and Georg Jensen's masterful silverwork.  An important piece, it is shown in numerous publications; see the reference list below.
