$1,800

About

Wonderful Danish Art Deco sandstone sculpture. Depicting Samson killing the lion with his bare hands. Made with Nexö sandstone from Bornholm. They started mining sandstone from Nexö, Bornholm in 1754. The mining ended in 1957. Marked "33" and with the Just A stamp. Good condition. Some very minor insignificant marks. Just Andersen (1884-1943) was born in Greenland, studying at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen in 1910 and the School of Danish Crafts at 1912 under Jens Moller Jensen. In his early career, Andersen designed for Georg Jensen, A. Michelsen, and P. Hertz, later opening Just Andersen Pewter in 1918 after being inspired by silversmiths with whom he worked. He is most known for his neoclassical design of everyday items, like sculptures, candlesticks, vases, in pewter, sandstone, brass, copper, bronze, and Disko (an allow of lead and antimony, Andersen’s own invention and named after the bay in Greenland where he grew up). Just Andersen had showrooms in Berlin, Brussels, London, Los Angeles, and New York.
