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.
