Size:  1 & 5/8 inches

A very fine and more rare vintage example of original Anton Michelsen jewelry, produced before the 1960's take-over by Georg Jensen.
The collectible Marguerite Daisy brooch, which honors the Danish National flower, was first issued in 1940 to commemorate the birth of Denmark's Princess Margrethe, who is now Queen.
This particular brooch is a more rare example issued in gold gilt sterling silver with engine turned guilloche yellow enamel;  both the intricate guilloche, as well as the bright yellow enamel add to the rarity, as the daisy motif is most often found in plain white enamel with no guilloche and frequently no gilt.
Additionally, this brooch is one of the larger sizes issued.  I have only seen one example that is apx. 3/8 of an inch larger.
The brooch is in exceptionally fine vintage estate condition.  The enamel was carefully examined using a jewelers loupe with no noted issues whatsoever.  The pin back and early roll over style safety clasp appear to be original and both are in very good working order.  The gold gilt, which unfortunately did not photograph well, remains bright, shiny and amazingly intact, with only minimal wear and scratches, even when examined under magnification.  Overall a very nice original vintage pin.

Anton Michelsen opened his first shop in Denmark in 1841.  He was Crown Jeweler to the Royal Court and had significant influence on 19th century and early 20th century Danish jewelry designs.  Michelsen was known for working in the Old Nordic style and intricate enamel work, which was also being done by other well known designers and jewelers of the time, like David Anderson, Carl Faberge and Louis Comfort Tiffany.
