Exquisite Modernist 1960s Danish N E From Sterling Silver & Rose Quartz Pendant. Wonderfully Beautiful Modernist Danish Sterling Silver & Rose Quartz Pendant.Stylised, Unique design by Niels Erik. Niels Erik From aka N. From (1908 1986) was one of the greats of Danish modern design. Both a silversmith and jeweller, he opened his workshop in 1931 when he was only twenty-three.
Over the next four decades Niels Erik created, among other works, floral-inspired pieces often set with semi-precious stones. These works derived from the Skønvirke style, a Scandinavian development that appeared during Denmarks Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movement period. It usually takes inspiration from natural designs like flower and foliage motifs as well as natural creatures like fish.
In the 1970s, Froms jewelry pieces morphed into more sculptural, modernist pieces as they were primarily created by other designers. These became some of N. Froms most well-known and recognised signature styles. From mark (a name by which Niels Erik is also known) did not appear until 1944 when it was first registered in the city of Nakskov in southern Denmark. Froms output displays two distinct styles: the thin, wiry foliage and floral pieces made during the early years of production and the later, bold modernist pieces that From marketed in the 1960s though, as previously stated, these were primarily created by other designers.
During its history, the company used a number of different signatures. Smaller pieces may simply be marked FROM.
FROM, STERLING, DENMARK, 925S in a square, and finally, many pieces bear the N. From signature in an italic script. Age related wear & tear meaning, there are scratches. Under close scrutiny, the Rose Quartz has internal fractures, the largest of which, shows as a white striation.Please see photographs as part of the visual description.
