a pewter, partly gilt necklace, Svenskt Tenn, Stockholm 1940's.
Length ca 43,5 cm.
Estrid Ericson began during World War II when material shortages prevailed, making jewelry in pewter. She took inspiration from all her travels and created jewelry by making castings in pewter of flowers, ropes, buds, buttons or as in this piece, different kind of seeds.
The idea was quite right in the time when "Costume Jewellry" was the highest fashion, even internationally. The so-called 'Etruscan necklace' that Estrid designed after a trip to Rome in the 1930's is sold even today at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
