A strong national romantic movement and the return to its own history gave the young nation a cultural bloom. In the area of jewelry production, the traditional and varied folk costumes, known as bunaders, influenced the country’s goldsmiths in particular. As in the area of traditional costumes, the newly created jewelry was mainly made of silver and often using the technique of filigree. The present unusual hair comb comes from this environment and is a particularly beautiful example of typical Norwegian jewelry. It also comes from one of the most important Norwegian goldsmiths of the beginning of the century, Marius Hammer. Born in Bergen in 1847, Hammer opened his workshop in 1871, which existed until 1927. Hammer was a contemporary of Faberge and is now one of the most important Scandinavian goldsmiths. The present hair comb is made of horn, the warm chestnut shade of which goes wonderfully with Allen hair colors. As a showpiece, the hair ornament presents a large decorative element made of silver wires, which are filled with elaborate plique-à-jour enamel. The technique, reminiscent of colored church windows, shows intertwined leaf ornaments that form a successful synthesis of Norwegian folk art and Art Nouveau. Hairstyle jewelry is very rare today.
