Finnish Maker

Postby fashion.fashoff » Tue Feb 06, 2018 12:08 pm

I have two pieces of jewelry by the same Finnish (probably) maker. One is a brooch with a traditional pitsi (lace) design. The other is a sculptural abstract form. I suspect these are c. 1980s or later.

Both are marked 925 in a box and a maker's mark that seems to be MK or HK. Because of the texture and oxidation on the silver, the marks are slightly hard to see.

Does anybody know this Finnish maker?

Hi,

Just an absolute shot in the dark, nothing more:

Could it NK?

Hi Trev,

Thanks for the suggestion! I am sure it is HK or MK, I have examined it at length under magnification. It was quite hard to photograph. Here is a Photoshop sketch of how the mark looks. The top part of the M is "filled in" as shown.

I feel pretty sure mine are c. 1980s-90s. The blackened finish on the earrings is a trend that seems to have come about in Finland & Estonia in this period.

The only 'MK' that I can find working in that period was a Matti Kosonen from Helsinki, working 1972-1989.

Again, just offering it as a route for further research.
