The history of the Norwegian jewelry brand Andresen & Scheinpflug spans exactly three decades, from 1936 to 1966. Founded in Oslo by silversmith Jens Ingvald Andresen (1901-1974), the company produced high quality enameled silver jewelry.
Andresen was an apprentice at the Hjortdahl & Meldahl workshop from 1915 to 1919 and continued to work there for many years. In 1931, Meldahl left the workshop to start his own company, and Andersen followed him. However, already in 1936, he co-founded his own Andresen & Scheinpflug workshop for the production of silver and enamel jewelry. Initially, the company’s address was Vognmannsgata 8 and later Storgata 7, Oslo. The company ceased to exist in 1966.
Mid-century Norwegian silver enamel jewelry is now quite rare and highly sought after by lovers and collectors of vintage jewelry.
Traditionally, the craftsmen of this company marked their products on the reverse side with 925 S and the initials TYA.

According to belief, Celtic Triquetra or Trinity endless knot symbolizes the endless cycle of life. Illuminated in manuscripts like the Book of Kells, interlacing indicates the interconnection of the physical and spiritual aspects of our being. In particular, the three planes of existence: mind, body and spirit. However, in the later Christian understanding, Triquetra represented the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
