Note: The ‘Acunthus' design is another of the successful Johan Rohde designs which has stood the test of time. Johan Rohde produced this pattern in the early days of his collaboration with Georg Jensen. This pattern was also used for one of the many produced for the Georg Jensen cutlery and other items such as grape scissors, etc. The Danish name for ‘Acanthus' is ‘Donning'. It is also currently still in production for sets of cutlery. Despite their differences in character and background, Georg Jensen and Johan Rohde worked together with virtually no conflict for 29 years. They had a mutual respect for understand each other's skills and sharing of artistic ideas. In 1913, Johan Rohde signed a contract to work solely as a designer for Georg Jensen.

Note: Johan Rohde was a distinguished painter & designer when he began his collaboration with Georg Jensen in 1906. He was one of Jensen's closest collaborators.

Without doubt, Johan Rode's “excellent taste and sense for beautiful lines” had a profound impact on the development of a distinctive ‘Jensen Style'. Rohde was keenly attuned to the goals and work of Georg Jensen and remained constantly in harmony with his ideals until his death in 1935

Ref: FL532


Note: During World War I, silver was in very short supply due to import restrictions placed against Denmark and business became very difficult for the Georg Jensen Silversmithy. However, in 1914 Jensen exhibited his work at the Baltic Exhibition in Malmo , Sweden . At the exhibition Stockholm Art Dealer, Nils Wendel, was so entranced with GJ's work, he bought everything on display.   Wendel came to the rescue of the company at a desperate time for them and t his began a long and successful business relationship between the two men. In the late 1920's and again between 1945-51, the mark ‘Georg Jensen & Wendel' appears on the production from Denmark .  This beautiful piece typifies the talent and craftsmanship of Georg Jensen.

Sold

Ref: ES328B


Note: This pretty Georg Jensen oval shaped Open Salt Dish, with a border of trailing flowers, is a lovely example of Georg Jensen's early work and perfectly shows his devotion to quality and style. Even this functional table item is a work of art. It was made in the very early days of Georg Jensen's workshop, which he set up in 1904. It is quite probable that Georg Jensen himself fashioned and made this particular item. In later years, there were many designers, who became famous in their own right, who began their careers with Georg Jensen, and gained their expertise and inspiration directly from the Master himself.
