Georg Jensen Silver & Moonstone Bracelet with Bird
Size: 7.5"x 3/4" (19 cm x 1.5 cm)
Designed by Georg Jensen early C20th.
Manufactured: Post 1945
Design No. 24
Note: This beautiful bracelet is in good condition and is another heirloom piece from the Georg Jensen Silversmithy. Georg Jensen breathed life into the silver he worked with and the blue light of the moonstones perfectly complements the glow of the silver and is typical of the Georg Jensen organic design. Jensen integrated the 'dove' design into various pieces of his jewellery output, including brooches, buckles, ear-rings and rings, using many different stones. He purchased the dove design from Christian Mohl-Hansen, the Danish painter, in the earliest days of his workshop (1904) and it became one of his most popular designs, illustrating his love of nature which influenced his work.

Georg Jensen Silver Brooch
Design No. 39
Size: 2 ¼ “ x 1” (5.7cm x 2.8 cm)
Designed by Georg Jensen
Price: £325 Enquiries
Note: This is a rare and unusual brooch designed by Georg Jensen himself c. 1907. This brooch was manufactured between 1933 - 44, and is now no longer in production. It has all the Georg Jensen hallmarks of the organic, flowing design which recreates the very essence of living plants out of the inanimate silver metal.
Anyone attempting the art of silversmithing, will know how incredibly difficult it is, if not impossible for the majority, to breathe life into metal, wood or stone and to make the material come alive.

Studio Else & Paul Pendant ‘Abstract Sun’
Size: Length: 2 ½ ins (5 cm)
Width: 2 5/16 ins (6 cm)
Manufactured: c. 1970
Else Bernstein Hughes (1938 – 2002) and Paul C. Hughes (1934 – 1981) met in 1959 at the Central School of Arts & Crafts in London. Later they established their own workshop ‘Studio Else & Paul’ in Hadelund, Nr Oslo, Norway. They became pioneers in the studio silver movement in Norway.
This pendant is a rare example of the 1970's ‘new’ look, using the technique called ‘lost-wax’ or ‘à cire perdue’ method. The jewellery is first modelled in wax, then a mould of plaster is cast around it. The wax melts when heated – liquid silver is poured into the mould while it rotates.
When removed from the mould, the piece is hand-finished and a layer of 999 pure silver is added for the final finish and this will not tarnish. The work of Else & Paul is now avidly sought after, although in their early years, they were considered too advant garde for most people.
Pieces of their work is limited as, after the death of Paul in 1981, Else concentrated on sculpting and no more jewellery was produced.
Georg Jensen Sterling Brooch with Labrodites
‘Tree of Life’ Design with safety clasp
Design No. 159
Size: 2 ins (4.5 cm) Diameter
Manufactured: 1909 - 14
Designed by Georg Jensen c. 1909, this is a beautiful example of Georg Jensen’s earliest designs and is an original piece, bearing the early GI mark. The labrodite stones have a remarkable play of colour known as ‘labradorescence’ and the aggregate layers refract the light as iridescent flashes. The agate was discovered in Labradore Canada, and has long been known to the native Inuit people for the mystical and protective properties. (www.crystalvaults.com ).
This Tulip bracelet, Design No. 93, is a very attractive piece of jewellery. It is possibly designed by Henning Koppel. It embraces all the elements of the Georg Jensen design which is to embody the organic feel of plant life in the simplest form

example of the life and organic movement which Georg Jensen breathes
into all his work. The stones include amethysts, moonstones and amber.
Floral Brooch designed by Georg Jensen with blue Lapis.
Design No: 66
Size: 2 cm (.75”) x 3 cm (1.2”)
Date of Manufacture: 1904-1908
Stock Ref. No. 948
This iconic Georg Jensen Brooch was made between 1904 and 1908. Georg Jensen set up his first workshop in Copenhagen in 1904, so this brooch was not only designed by Georg Jensen but will most probably have actually been made by him. At the beginning of his workshop, he only had one 14 year old apprentice, Henry Pilstrup, to help him with his work.
This is an exciting piece of Georg Jensen memorabilia as he will probably have actually handled this piece of jewellery. Georg Jensen’s magic in his design and the beautiful deep blue of the lapis, bring the brooch to life. A ‘must have’ for any devotee of Georg Jensen’s work.
