A lovely silver gilt butterfly brooch that was made by Olaf Fritjof Hjortdahl. He was trained in 1905 by Clement Berg. Later he worked with both Aksel Holmsen and Ole Olberg. He settled in Oslo in 1914 and established the Bernard Meldahl workshop which specialised in enamel pieces of jewellery. Bernard Meldahl left in 1931 and Olav Hjortdahl continued under his own name O.F.Hjortdal. When heHjortdahl died in 1954 his son Tore Hjortdahl business. The workshop closed in 1970. This brooch was made circa 1935-1940. You can see through the translucent enamel to the etched silver below. The colours are subtly graded in a realistic fashion. It is a wonderful example of Hjortdahl’s fine workmanship.
