Vintage Bent Knudsen Sterling Heart Brooch, 4 Hearts, 6.96 gr. Denmark, Mid-Century
Vintage Bent Knudsen Sterling Silver Brooch, four hearts, modified design - their points meet in the center, slightly domed. It is 1-3/8" square and weighs 6.96 grams. 1950's-1960's. It is in the original Georg Jensen, Inc. silver box with white satin lining. Although the artist is from Denmark, the company Georg Jensen sold this out of a Fifth Avenue shop in New York. Georg Jensen handling other silversmiths like David Andersen and others. This is an estate piece out of Pennsylvania. Bent Knudsen and his wife designed many modern for their day pieces with simple yet abstract designs and their pieces are still sought after and command high prices. I was fortunate to get four pieces handled out of the Georg Jensen, Inc. shop. Bent was born in 1924 and passed in 1996. He graduated from Cohr's Silverware Production. Afterwards, he was employed at Hans Hansen for several years, before he moved to Kolding, where he opened his own silversmith workshop together with his wife. Their jewelry is known for its simple design. This came from a PA estate. See photos. W.1.119.G.No.12.11X1 (L.D. 1/9/19).
