Vintage sterling silver Sølje brooch. It was made in Norway, but it is only marked 830S. Measures 1 1 1/4" in diameter and 2" long. Weight: 6 grams.
Sølje is Norway’s traditional silver jewelry. Its dangling spoons once were thought to reflect evil away from the wearer, protecting one from trolls and other dangers, especially in times of transition. Particularly appropriate for babies and brides.
