Grete Prytz Kittelsen for Tostrup Plated Sterling Enamel Norwegian Modern Brooch

About

Iconic, lightly gold plated sterling silver brooch with emerald green enameled scales or tabs created by Grete Prytz Kittelsen of Oslo, Norway. Brooch measures 2.25" in diameter and is signed Sterling, J. Tostrup, Norway. In very good vintage condition. Prytz Kittelsen was a goldsmith, an enamel artist and designer. She is among the most well-known Norwegians in the Scandinavian Design movement and has been called by many the “Queen of Scandinavian Design”. For half a century Prytz Kittelsen was part of the community of modernist architects and designers that included Ray and Charles Eames, Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe. As one of the leading artists of the Scandinavian design movement, she received many awards and honors in the 1950's including the Lunning Prize in 1952 and the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale in 1954 for her enamel collection. In 1957 and 1961, she received gold medals at the Milan shows.
