Volmer Bahner (1912-1995) was a multi-disciplined Danish artist and designer. He graduated from the Industrial Arts and Crafts College in 1930 and received several scholarships and awards. Many of his works are represented at the Kunstindustrimuseet, the Danish Museum of Art.
Volmer Bahner is also known for his modernist and naturalist inspired, enamelled silver jewellery designs that he created and manufactured in his own silver workshop after World War II. A nature lover, Bahner drew inspiration from the flowers and plants of the Danish countryside. The most recognisable Volmer Bahner designs are the hearts and animal motifs, including fish and butterflies.
Bahner’s mark is his initials VB, accompanied by STERLING, DENMARK. This butterfly brooch is a good example of his work.
