Georg Jensen Cufflinks
Design No. 69 Size: 2 cm (.75”) x 1.2 cm (.5”) Designed by Henry Pilstrup
Manufactured: Post 1945
Ref: 1001
Price: £230
Enquiries

Henry Pilstrup was Georg Jensen's first apprentice at the age of 14, when the workshop was established in Copenhagen in 1904. Later he became Foreman and created many designs. He remained with the company until his retirement in 1957. Georg Jensen always gave his designers the credit for their designs, and in many cases allowed them to put their initials on their work. These Sterling silver cufflinks, designed in the 1930s, feature a gilt stylised flower set into a recessed oval frame within an overall rectangular shape. The pattern is repeated on the backs. As with all Georg Jensen’s work, they are beautifully made and very strong.

Georg Jensen ‘Double Tulip’ Brooch 925 Sterling with Coral cabouchon
Design No. 100A
Size: 3.5 cm (1.5”) x 2.9 cm (1.25”)
Designed by Georg Jensen in 1904 Manufactured: Post 1945
Ref: 829
Price: £275
Enquiries

Georg Jensen ‘Double Tulip’ Brooch was designed by Georg Jensen in 1904 and is one of his earliest designs. This particular design has become an iconic Georg Jensen design and symbolises the perfection of design and the organic quality which he has infused into the silver. This particular brooch has the Coral cabouchon, but Georg Jensen made this design with many other coloured stones, such as amber, lapis, malachite, moonstone. Corals are major contributors to the physical structure of the coral reefs that develop in tropical and subtropical waters, such as the enormous Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Corals' many colors give it appeal for necklaces and other jewellery. Intensely red coral is prized as a gemstone. Sometimes called fire coral, it is not the same as fire coral. Red coral is very rare because of overharvesting.

Georg Jensen Bangle Silver & Amethyst
Design No: 269
Size: c. 5.8 cm (2.3”) x 5.6 cm (2.2”)
Designed by Swedish Designer Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe
Manuf. 1960
Ref. 945
Price: £1200
Enquiries

Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe (born December 4, 1927 in Malmö – died July 3, 2004 in Copenhagen), often known simply as Torun, was one of Sweden's most important 20th century silversmiths and a master jeweller. She is the first female silversmith to have become internationally noted. Among her most important works are the watch "Vivianna," the bracelet "Mobius," and the earrings and necklaces "Dew Drop." Torun's jewelry has been worn by celebrities including Billie Holiday, Ingrid Bergman, and Brigitte Bardot, and her customers included Pablo Picasso and Duke Ellington.[3] Her work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Swedish National Museum in Stockholm, the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Montreal, the Louvre in Paris, the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in London, and in the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. This bangle is a wonderful example of Torun’s work for Georg Jensen – she carried on Georg Jensen’s thesis of bringing inanimate materials to life, to make everyday things beautiful and functional. Her work is simple, yet sculptural - these distinctive pieces encapsulate an organic beauty.

Georg Jensen Silver Brooch
Design No. 39
Size: 2 ¼ “ x 1” (5.7cm x 2.8 cm)
Designed by Georg Jensen
Manuf. 1933-44
Ref. 890
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’
Hadelund, Norway
Size: Length: 2 ½ ins (5 cm)
Width: 2 5/16 ins (6 cm)
Manufactured: c. 1970
Ref: 1006
Price: £325  
Enquiries

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.

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 ).

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
SOLD
  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.
