[C.1960s–1970s Finnish Silversmith Liisa Vitali Jewelry Ephemera and Related].
Three items, two being pieces of trade literature for gold and silver jewelry designed by Liisa Vitali (1918-1987), a leading Finnish silversmith.
Here, a German-language trade catalog and product brochure from Helsinki jeweler, Kultakeskus Oy, show jewelry designs for several series Vitali created in the late 1960s and early 1970s: “Knospe” (bud), “Ameisenpfad” (ant’s path), “Früling” (Spring), “Zwiebel” (onion), “Katzenpfote” (cat’s paw), and—perhaps, her best-known series—Spitze (lace) and Marienkäfer (ladybug). Jewelry pieces shown include pendants, brooches, rings, bracelets (both closed and cuff styles), earrings, and necklaces. Each piece is identified by a code; without price.
The above two items are accompanied by an illustrated English, French, and German-language brochure promoting “World-famous Finnish Jewelry”—including some men’s cuff links, tie pins, and formal shirt buttons—offered by Helsinki jewelers Turun Kultaseppä Oy.
