A Collection of Georg Jensen and Danish Silverware, Hollowware and JewelryAug 05, 2020 12:00 EDT - Aug 21, 2020 21:00 EDT
Considered one of Denmark’s most influential designers, Georg Jensen began training as a goldsmith at the age of 14. In 1904, the Danish silversmith started his own company, which continues to bear his name. The company created designs that possessed, according to Jensen, both functionality and beauty. The upcoming auction, offered by Greg Pepin Silver, presents a selection of silverware and jewelry pieces from Georg Jensen. A boxed set of Georg Jensen “Magnolia” silverware is among the key lots. The special-order set includes 472 pieces and is likely the largest service ever created in this particular pattern.
Another highlighted lot from the event is a Georg Jensen tureen. Embracing the style of the Art Nouveau era, this oval piece is decorated with flowers and berry details. It comes with a matching sterling silver ladle. Both pieces were designed around the end of World War I. A coral brooch from Evald Nielsen is also available. Nielsen was a leading figure behind the organizing of Danish gold and silversmith guilds. The Copenhagen silversmith was active from 1905 through 1958.
