Item details

Vintage from the 1960s


Leather, Silver


Necklace length: 26 Inches

A stunning Norwegian vintage Sterling silver 925 pendant. Fully hallmarked to the reverse - the logo which resembles two pliars is that of Aksel Holmsen, Norway, from the 1960s - it also reads 'Norway Sterling 925 S'. Aksel Holmsen were mostly known for their enamel work, but a few of these striking 1960s minimalist/modernist silver designs were produced in the 1960s (the workshop closed in 1971). I can't find another the same!

The pendant is two splayed out flat rods, with four ball bearings, and a larger half ball mounted centrally - all sterling silver - see pics. Neat hole at the top for a slim chain or cord. I've put a 1.5mm wide round leather thong on it for you (26" long but can go any length you want). Mid Century Modernist and Minimalist in style, and typical of the 1960s Scandinavian era.

Pendant is 45mm x 28mm and weighs 5g. Just the right size - smart, simple, classy. And over 50 years old!

Price includes P&P to the UK. Simple presentation box included.

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

Items weighing under 2kg total will be posted by 2nd class Royal Mail. If it's a high value item I'll add Signed For. Items weighing over 2kg will be posted by Hermes, and if they are high value I'll add Signed For. I may not be able to post to some areas of the UK, such as the Channel Islands, but I'll give it a good go! I'll try to post within 24 hours (when Post Office opening hours allow).
All postage abroad will be by Royal Mail's International Tracked and Signed service, so will need signing for your end. Please say if you'd prefer just a Tracked service instead. I can't post anything that weighs over 2kg or is larger than a 'small parcel'.
I have specially chosen these items to be of superior quality and condition for their age and era. All my items are vintage (25+ years old) and may naturally have some wear and tear which may not be in the description. I have written everything to the best of my ability, and tried to describe any obvious flaws. The photos also help to show the condition - please view all photos and read the descriptions.
For lower value items I'm happy for you to provide the address and unique code for a UK onward mailing company, but I cannot accept responsibility for any damage or non-delivery beyond the mailing company's address. Once the UK mailing company has safely received the parcel it is no longer my responsibility.
Why buy new? Buy vintage, and help protect the planet. You're rescuing vintage pieces for future generations. Also, please don't bin my packaging - save, re-use and recycle. Thank you.
I use large bubble bubble-wrap with strengthening card and sturdy cardboard boxes. I often double box for safety and I re-use old newspapers to fill any gaps. I have been selling on Etsy for over five years and know and trust my packing. Jewellery is posted in small sturdy cardboard jewellery boxes, in a mailing bag. (Please re-use or recycle any packaging!)
UK free postage is factored into all my prices... I think UK customers like to see an upfront price including postage with no hidden surprises. Sorry I can't offer free post worldwide.
