David Andersen opened his shop in Oslo, Norway in 1876. As a designer and retailer specialising in jewellery and silver wares, Andersen’s business model closely mirrors that of Danish silversmith Georg Jensen, who was twenty-three years his junior. Jensen opened his shop in 1904. Andersen died in 1901 and his sons took over company operations and designs. Today, David-Andersen (the company’s name since the early 20th century) is well known for its mid-century enamelled silver jewellery. This enamelled silver gilt sea horse is an excellent example of his work and was made in the late 1930s.
