How do you know Stavanger? I don't think we have any J.J. in Stavanger. Do you have a pic of the ring?

It is not necessarily a wedding pin, but a ordinary pin for a folkcostume (sølje) from Telemark.
It could be Tor Aslaksøn Ginderud in Bø in Telemark b. 1798 d.1871

Re: Info on Norwegian silversmith, J. Bryde, please

No, I have never heard a name of the patter.
Jens Bryde had a workshop in Drammen from 1847 until 1870. Then he moved to Christiania/Oslo and started up a workshop there and when he died in 1877 his nephew William Bryde took over.

K.A.Rasmussen

The Norwegian producer K.A.Rasmussens founder is Knut Andreas Rasmussen - not Karl.
It is written Karl everywhere and it is so wrong.
