Footnotes

  • Henrik Møller (1858-1937) of Trondheim was a major proponent of Dragestil, a Norse Revival style of the Arts & Crafts period that used Viking era and early Medieval motifs. Much of his work drew on designs found on early architecture of his native Trondheim. During his career Møller's work was highly prized and the silversmith built up a number of notable clientele, including several members of Europe's ruling houses.

    Examples of Møller's work can be found in the Kunstindustrimuseet in Oslo, and the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim.
