The information for this Beautiful Blue BAHNER, STERLING, DENMARK signed brooch was taken verbatim from a Vintage Scandinavian Jewelry Site. It measures 1 1/8" in diameter.
BAHNER, Volmer (VB)
Volmer Bahner was Denmark's best known specialist enamel company, and was registered from 1962 to 1988.
The designs are innovative, especially in the beautiful guilloche enamel floral pieces such as the cala lily, which was made in several colours including a number of blues, white and deep red. This design was used for brooches, earrings, bracelets and even necklaces. But Bahner also produced simple, non-figurative designs in the Art Deco style.
Above all, the most instantly identifiable Volmer Bahner designs are his hearts and animal motifs, including fish and butterflies. These too were made in different configurations and for different body parts! Many were specifically designed as presents for young girls, and so the rings, bracelets and necklaces are often quite small in size. These can however be extended by any competent jeweller, as they have usually been assembled with simple jump rings.
Bahner's mark is his initials VB, accompanied by STERLING, DENMARK
His work is sometimes also linked to the company CHRISTGAU, and may bear this mark
