A Black Silver Yellow Enamel Butterfly by Marius Hammer
Marius Hammer was a well known Norwegian goldsmith and jeweller. He studied in Hamburg and Berlin before establishing his own workshop in Bergen in 1871. From around 1880 he specialised in modern versions of traditional Norwegian jewellery as well as plique-à-jour enamel work. From around 1885 he advertised himself as ‘By Special Appointment to the Prince of Wales’, listing also ‘the largest collection of Norwegian antiquities in Scandinavia’. He retired in 1915 but the firm remained active until 1930 under his two sons, Torolf and Max.
