Sandstone Sculpture of a Merman by Just Andersen

About

Beautiful sandstone sculpture of a merman by Just Andersen, made in Denmark, ca. 1940. It is in excellent condition. Just Andersen 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 candlesticks and vases, in pewter, 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. During the last years of his life, Andersen began working with sandstone, forgoing metal for the war effort.
