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 – 1932 and would be a worthy example in any Georg Jensen collection for pleasure or investment.
