David Andersen Jewellery


David Andersen is one of Norway's most celebrated gold and silversmiths, with a legacy stretching back to 1876. David Andersen set up his workshop is Oslo, and quickly achieved success owing to the exceptional quality and workmanship of his pieces. Upon his death in 1901, Andersen's son Arthur took over the firm, rebanding to a hyphenated David-Andersen and introducing the use of enamelling on jewellery as well as holloware. 

This enamelled jewellery became so successful that the name David Andersen is largely associated with beautiful and bright enamelled brooches, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings and thimbles. Now in its fourth generation, David-Andersen continues to produce stunning enamelled jewellery to this day. 

Ever popular at auction with a discerning field of collectors, David Andersen's work sells well - in particular early silverware, enamelled silverware, vases, unusual enamelled jewellery and suites of jewellery in good condition.
