The book about Scandinavian’s
Golden Era of Enamel Jewelry
from 1860 – 1960
should be available next month.
From 1860 to 1960, an era of Scandinavian enamel jewelry production flourished.
Because Scandinavian enamel had extremely high technical and artistic quality, this
period is called the “golden age” of enamel jewelry and thus an important era in enamel arts history.
From the late 1800's, enamel art became one of the most prestigious fields in Norway and by 1904, at the Saint Louis World’s Fair held in Missouri, USA, Norwegian enamellists received awards in enameling that surpassed their Russian counterparts. However, there was almost no information published about these award-winning master goldsmith artisans.
The book "Northern Lights" is about thirty-eight of the most prominent Scandinavian master goldsmiths and their Workshops. Each chapter contains a history of the artisans, including a photograph of the artesian, their Makers Mark(s), photographs of a selection of their enamel work and comments about the working conditions and history of the times in which they worked. The book has 342 pages and more than 500 photographs.
