Georg Jensen Silver Crucifix
Georg Jensen Silver Crucifix
Design No. 151A Pendant

Designed by: Henning Koppel
Manufactured: Post 1945
Note: Henning Koppel was hired by the Georg Jensen company in 1949.  By the early 1940's Nordic jewellers had embraced 'Biomorphism' Biomorphist art focuses on the power of natural life and uses organic shapes, with shapeless and vaguely spherical hints of the forms of biology. Biomorphism has connections with Surrealism and Art Nouveau .  Henning Koppel and the term 'Biomorphism' have come to be virually synonymous.  His advant guard designs caused much intra-company controversy but now examples of Henning's work have become icons of mid 20th century jewellery design

Georg Jensen Brooch ‘Dolphins

Georg Jensen Brooch ‘Dolphins
Design No. 251
Size: 3.8 cm (1.25") x 3.1 cm (1.25")
Designed by Arno Malinowski for Georg Jensen
Date of Manufacture: Post 1945

Arno Malinowski designed for Georg Jensen in the 1940’s.  His designs are proving to be as popular today as they were then.  He had to work in very difficult conditions during the wartime period, when silver was in short supply in Denmark, due to the severe restrictions of silver imports.  However, the firm survived and carried on despite everything, even though the silversmiths had to sometimes wait to be paid for their work.  Luckily, Georg Jensen had many friends and admirers, who always came to the rescue when the company got into difficulties.  These brooches are iconic pieces of history which tell the Georg Jensen story.

Georg Jensen Brooch with Synthetic Sapphires and Moonstone drops.
Design No. 153 Size: Width 1.25” (3 cm) x Length 2” (5.2 cm) including drops. Each drop measures ¾” (2 cm).
Designed by: Georg Jensen c. 1915
Date of Manufacture: Post 1945
Note: A large number of Jensen's jewellery designs have remained popular through the years since they were introduced and some are still in production today. Georg Jensen's attention to detail, such as the surface patina and clasp detail, are indications of his superior workmanship. This unusual brooch, design no. 153, is reminiscent of a peacock's flowing tail and head feathers. Many pieces could be ordered either in all silver or with different stones. Another version of this brooch with green cabouchons is on page 93 of Janet Drucker's book, ‘Georg Jensen: A Tradition of Splendid Silver' (Schiffer).

Georg Jensen Bowl (Louvre)
Design No. 180B
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

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

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

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.

Georg Jensen Chocolate Spoon

Georg Jensen Chocolate Spoon
Design No. 21
Size: Length 5 3/8 th “ (13.5cm)
Designed by Georg Jensen Date of Manufacture: 1909 – 1914

Ref: MH620

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.

Designed By: Georg Jensen Date of Manufacture: 1915 – 1930

 

Ref: RH905

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.
