Description

DATE: Mid-Century, c.1950

Elegant vintage horse pin designed by illustrious Danish designer Arno Malinowski for Georg Jensen. The form is impeccable, thoroughly mid-century modern with clean curves and lines - the equine head distilled into its purest image. Crafted in 18 karat gold.

"Arno Malinowski was successful as a silver designer and a sculptor, ceramist, engraver and medalist. He trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts., School of Sculpture in Copenhagen from 1919 to 1922 and designed a series of statuettes depicting mythological characters from 1921 to 1935 for the Royal Danish Porcelain Manufactory. He worked with the Georg Jensen Company from 1936 to 1944 and from 1949 to 1965 creating designs for jewelery and hollowware. His jewelery often include detailed designs of animals such as the kneeling deer and two dolphin brooches. He also designed the "Kingmark" to celebrate the 70th birthday of King Christian X in 1940. The Kingmark was produced in great number and worn by Danes to show their loyalty to Denmark and their resistance to the German occupation. Malinowski also designed pieces of jewelry in iron rather than silver during the war years when the silver supply was limited. Malinowski is best known for his jewelry but also created hollowware designs which often also incorporated the forms of stylized animals."
