Extremely rare and beautiful early silver and enamel brooch by renowned Scottish designer Norman Grant. A wonderful design from his late 60s/early 70s series resembling cross-sections of flowers, with beautiful enamelled panels and circles in shades of vibrant purple and red.Similar pieces from this series are owned by the Aberdeen Art Gallery. A large and striking piece which looks stunning on - can also be worn as a pendant by looping a silver chain round the pin. From the Aberdeen Art Gallery National Acquisitions web pages. Norman Grant was born in Forres, Moray in 1943 and studied at Grays School of Art in the 1960s. His preferred medium was translucent enamel which he combined with sterling silver.. He was influenced by the natural forms of the coastal landscape he had grown up with. Inevitably these influences found their way into his early jewellery designs; microscopic plant cell structures, petals, stamens, seed heads, trees, driftwood, shells, seaweed, anemone-like forms and later fish, wave and cloud motifs can all be seen in his work. In very good condition for its age, with excellent enamel. The photos don't do this lovely piece justice.
