Antique Danish Skønvirke silver Hans Jensen & Co brooch with chrysoprase cabochon. Signed HJ and 830s for the silver content.

Hand made in Denmark, this is a Scandinavian Arts and Crafts brooch created by the Hans Jensen company in the early 1900s (the company lasted from 1899 to 1970).

Features an organic Skønvirke, Arts and Crafts, design in chased silver and has a green chalcedony - chrysoprase - cabochon.

Chrysoprase is the rarest form of chalcedony, which is a green agate that has a translucent appearance and is considered to be one of the most valuable types of quartz gemstones. The beautiful greens have a luminescence to them and can range from a pale mint to a rich jade.

This stylish silver brooch is typical of the naturalistic styles that were popular at the turn of the 20th Century. Danish artists were inspired by the British Arts and Crafts movement and the work of Charles Robert Ashbee who chased and moulded thin silver sheets to create plant and organic styled jewellery. The silver also reflects a popular way of oxidising the metal with a sulphuric solution to create darker areas in the indents to give a sharp contrast and highlight the organic designs.
