Vintage 1950s Norwegian Aksel Holmsen winter silhouette enamel panel bracelet

A mid-century Norwegian winter scene panel bracelet by silversmith Askel Holmsen. Holmsen apprenticed with David Andersen at the turn of the 20th century and went on to establish his own atelier, which produced silver and enamel jewelry through the early 1970s. This bracelet shows a variety of Scandinavian winter scenes in silhouette against cold blue and pink skies. A Viking ship, a leggy moose, a reindeer and sled, a cliffside, and a fishing boat comprise the five panels. Each vignette is separated by a black enamel flower-shaped spacer. Excellent condition and wonderfully evocative of low, winter light!

Measurements: 17.2 grams, 7" end to end, 14.5mm wide (widest point of panel)
Era: 1950s 
Markings: 925S NORNE and the hallmark for Askel Holmsen
