Antique Norwegian Henrik Moller Silver Bishop Brooch
ANTIQUE NORWEGIAN SILVER HENRIK MOLLER BISHOP BROOCH
A stunning rare antique Henrik Moller Silver Bishop brooch circa late 1800s early 1900s.
Henrik Møller (1858-1937) of Trondheim was a major proponent of Dragestil, a Norse Revival style of the Arts & Crafts period that used Viking era and early Medieval motifs.
Much of his work drew on designs found on early architecture of his native Trondheim. During his career Møller's work was highly prized and the silversmith built up a number of notable clientele, including several members of Europe's ruling houses. Examples of Møller's work can be found in the Kunstindustrimuseet in Oslo, and the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim.
Dragestil refers to a Norwegian version of Arts and Crafts, relating to the use of predominately Viking and Medieval designs in both art and architecture. It was used principally between 1890 and 1910, a period when multiple archaeological finds were coming to light, inspiring a renewed national romanticism for Norse art.
