Large bronze pendant with original necklace, marked P. Sarpaneva Finland Bronze.
My Lucky thriftstore find of today. I paid the crazy amount of € 0,50. They really didn't know what they were selling.
More info on Pennti Sarpaneva:
Pentti Sarpaneva (1925-1978) is one of Finland's most famous modernist jewellers. He studied at the Graphics Arts department of the Institute of Industrial Art in Finland. He worked mainly in bronze. Often you can find amethyst and other semi-precious stones in his "dramatically" styled jewelry . He took his inspiration from nature, the bark of trees, weathered and dead pines and Karelian embroidery of his youth. He made moulds of these motives that were used for very decorative objects. The Sarpaneva products were mainly exported to Sweden and Norway but also to Denmark, America, Japan and England.
