Of abstract design set with cabochon sodalite and circular-cut pink tourmalines, length approximately 520mm, signed Georg Jensen, maker's mark for Henning Koppel.
Hennig Koppel studied at the Kunstakademiet (Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts) and the Academie Rancon in Paris, joining the Georg Jensen Company when he was 27. His designs are noted for their organic aesthetic, as inspired by other artists of the time such as Salvador Dali.
