Norwegian Art Nouveau – Marius Hammer jewelry
Marius Hammer was one of the rather famous masters of the Scandinavian Art Nouveau. He lived in Bergen and belonged to a family of hereditary Norwegian jewelers. However, Marius himself, whose life years (1847 – 1927) occurred in a turbulently innovative period in decorative and applied art,
his decorations have a unique author’s look. This is undoubtedly modern, but the Hammer style is radically different from the typical Scandinavian modern style, with its simple lines and cool range of enamels. Marius Hummer usually filled the simple and symmetrical outer contour of the frame with filigree and additional decorative elements.
In his jewelry, he used the motifs of traditional Viking ornaments, but creatively transformed them, and, at the same time, managed to preserve the harmony of the ornament in his transformations. Undoubtedly, this testifies the master’s great talent and impressive knowledge in jewelry.
