This delightful spoon was designed by Georg Jensen c. 1919 and is known as the ‘Pea Pod’ design. There are several sizes of this spoon, and the smaller version, which is the one offered here, is much rarer than the larger size. This spoon is a beautiful example of Georg Jensen’s inspired workmanship and also encapsulates his thesis of ‘making everyday objects beautiful well as useful’. This was the aim of all the artists involved in the Arts & Crafts movement which began in the late 1800’s.

Georg Jensen designed this fork c. 1919 as part of his Ornamental Collection. This one is also named a ‘Cocktail Fork’ for use with olives/pickles etc. This particular fork was made after the Georg Jensen company was taken over by the Scandinavia Group of Companies which occurred in the 1980’s. This is shown by the fact that the fork has Georg Jensen Ltd for its mark. Now the Georg Jensen has been taken over once again, by Investcorp in 2012 with its head office in Bahrain. David Chu is the Managing Director, who has great plans for the ‘Georg Jensen Brand’, so this little fork is another marker in the ever changing fortunes of the Georg Jensen company.

Note: Johan Rohde came from a wealthy family and was a well known and important painter, graphic artist and designer in his own right. He created the Fee Exhibition for artists whose work was not accepted by the establishment for the Charlottenborg Exhibition. Johan Rohde joined forces with Georg Jensen in the early years of the Georg Jensen silversmithy. Although their styles were very different, their friendship lasted a lifetime and Rohde was a powerful influence on the work of Georg Jensen. Rohde was responsible for many of the cutlery designs, including the well known Acorn design.

This beautiful centrepiece bowl is a wonderful example of his work and was produced c. 1915 to 1932 and would be a worthy example in any Georg Jensen collection for pleasure or investment.

There are examples of this work in the Danish Museum of Decorative Art; Joslyn Memorial Museum, USA; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the National Gallery, Australia.
Georg Jensen also designed a teapot and stand, a coffeepot, a sugar bowl with lid and tray in this category. The ‘magnolia blossom' design was also used for cutlery, tableware and dressing table accessories.
The creamer jug handle has an old repair, where a fine crack in the ivory handle has been riveted with silver rivets.

Ref: PF634

Enquiries


Georg Jensen designed this delightful sugar basket in 1917, which was during the difficult times of the 1 st World War when silver was in short supply and Germany, which had been their largest market, was now closed to them. However, the firm had started to expand to other regions such as America, and further developed the market in Sweden.
Georg Jensen would have drawn the design of this sugar basket on any scrap of paper he could lay his hands on at the time, wherever the inspiration had come to him, whether in a restaurant or in the workshop. He would then have passed it to one of his silversmiths to manufacture. In spite of the troubled times they were in, Georg Jensen continued to design and produce his works of art.

Size: 4 ¼” (11.4cm) High x 5 ½” (14.1cm)
Diameter Weight: 10.5 troy oz.
Designed by: Georg Jensen in 1912
Date of Manufacture: Post 1945

Ref: HP627

SOLD


This is a gadron edged flared bowl resting on berry & leaf supports and has a stepped round foot. The bowl is a smaller version of the 'Louvre' bowl designed by Georg Jensen in 1912, and was acquired by the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Georg Jensen went to live in Paris in 1925 taking 5 of his silversmiths with him with the intention of setting up his own workshop again in the hope of recreating his early days. He felt that his company had moved away from his high ideals of workmanship, style & craftsmanship.
However, due to economic restrictions, the venture was not a success and he had to pack up and return to Denmark in 1926. During his time in Paris he won many prestigious awards for his work. Georg Jensen was a brilliant artist, but not a businessman.

Georg Jensen Bowl with Berry Design
Design No. 778
Size: 4¼” (10.8cm) High x 5¾” (14.8cm) Diameter Weight: 9 troy oz.
Designed by: Gundorph Albertus (1887 -1970) in 1935
Date of Manufacture: Post 1945
SOLD

Ref: NA623

Enquiries


Gundorph Albertus worked for the Georg Jensen Silversmithy for over 40 years. He eventually became Assistant Director 1926-1954.
Albertus designed bowls, cups, cocktail shakers, dishes and trays. Many examples of Albertus's holloware from the 1930's have clean, strikingly modern shapes that are accented by floriform ornamentation set at the bases, finials and handles.
Because of this it is possible to view his work as a transition from the firm's exuberantly ornamental designs to the clean-lined, virtually unornamental designs that became dominant in the 1930's.

Design No. 21

Designed by Georg Jensen Date of Manufacture: 1909 – 1914

Ref: MH620

SOLD


Georg Jensen designed this spoon at the beginning of the C20th. It is a perfect example of Georg Jensen's love of organic design and his wish to make ordinary functional objects into works of art. This spoon, with its graceful lines speaks a thousand words for the Master of Design who wanted to make the working world a beautiful place to be. Having started his working life as a 'grinder' in a knife factory at the age of 14, he was well aware of the grim conditions people could find themselves in for their daily lives. His art was his contribution to the fact that there was another beautiful world and his work served to remind them of this.

Note: This little salt dish was designed by Georg Jensen during a difficult time for the Georg Jensen Silversmithy as it had to cope with the hostilities of World War I. However, although they had to close their Berlin shop in 1915, in America William Randolph Hearst bought practically every item on display at the Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, just as Nils Wendel had done the year before in Sweden. These men, along with many others, recognised the great & unique talent of Georg Jensen.
