Danish jeweler Volmer Bahner is known for his modernist and naturalistic enamelled silver jewelry, which he began creating in his own silver workshop after World War II. A nature lover, Bahner drew inspiration from the flowers and plants of the Danish countryside. Handcrafted from 925 sterling silver, covered with guilloché enamel, these jewelry pieces are still in excellent condition thanks to their high quality.
A versatile Danish artist and designer, Volmer Bahner (1912–1995) graduated from the College of Art and Industry in 1930. Having received several scholarships and awards, Bahner founded his own enamel company in 1962. The company, which he headed until 1988, was very famous in Denmark. Noteworthy, according to some Internet resources, 1962 is erroneously indicated as the year of the beginning of jewelry production. In fact, the jeweler started making jewelry much earlier, in the 1940s, after the end of WWII.
The design of his jewelry is considered innovative, especially hearts and animals design, including fish and butterflies, made in different configurations and colors of enamels. The most commonly found jewelry is sterling silver or gold-plated and enamelled in bright cobalt color. Traditionally, all designer jewelry is marked VB – these are his initials followed by STERLING, DENMARK.
