A remarkable pendant by Finnish designer Björn Weckström. The piece is known as “Space Apple” and is among famous designs that Weckström created while experimenting with acrylic in jewelry in the early 1970s. The result is a beautifully sculptural, biomorphic piece. The acrylic has a brilliant turquoise and teal colouring that is just incredible.
Year: Original design from 1972, reproduced here in 1994. Material: Silver and acrylic Stamps: 925, Weckström makers mark, Finnish crown (assay mark), R8 (1994), Lapponia. Condition: Very good - there is wear to the rhodium finish in one place and some irregularity to the patina.
