Fabulous Scandinavian vintage pendant dating from the 1960s. This Rolf and Soleig Haukaas enamel copper pendant from Norway features an organic design in a lovely trapezium shape in brown, white, and red with a hint of gold. the white and red areas look like petals. Like all of their work it has an incredible shine due to the guilloche technique that they use.

The back has the makers mark which is a backward S and R as well as the words HÅNDARBEID BALESTRAND NORGE. The chain is a flat copper chain measuring 46cm and has a strong spring ring clasp. The necklace hangs nicely around the neckline.
There is a tradition of excellent Modernist design work in enameled jewellery from Norway and Scandinavia.
