1960s Anton Michelsen Sterling Silver + Porcelain "Royal Bini" Neck Ring
In the 1960s, Denmark had its hand on the pulse of design. The Royal Bini series which was produced by Danish firm Anton Michelsen for ceramic giant Royal Copenhagen, explores the use of porcelain in modern jewelry design. The results are clean and sleek pieces which merge two distinct realms of design; symbolic of the merger of the two firms in 1968. This striking neck ring is part of this original collection. This piece was sold exclusively in Georg Jensen, Copenhagen in the 1960s.
A little history from the catalog: “In Royal Bini a new jewellery idea as been created by The Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory’s ceramists Doreen Middelboe, Bodil Buch, Nils Thorsson and goldsmith Jen Windfeld-Hansen in cooperation with A. MIchelsen’s workshops.”
