The Spring Inventory Sale – Rare & Unique Silver Hollowware, Jewelry & Gift ItemsApr 30, 2020 06:00 EDT - May 17, 2020 09:00 EDT
With a focus on silverware, Georg Jensen A/S is a Danish design company founded by silversmith Georg Arthur Jensen in 1904. Five years later, Jensen opened his first shop in Berlin, and in 1912, he opened a bigger workshop and retail store in Copenhagen. The Spring Inventory Sale, presented by Greg Pepin Silver, offers rare silver hollowware, jewelry, and gift items designed by Georg Jensen. One of the key lots in the auction is a 472-piece Georg Jensen Blossom “Magnolia” silverware service. Handmade in Denmark, this is likely the largest Georg Jensen Blossom silverware service ever made and was a special commission. All of the pieces are enclosed in 12 mahogany cases.
Another highlight is a Georg Jensen “Louvre” champagne bowl from 1912. It stands on a stem of leaves and berries. The hand-hammered surface is one of Jensen’s trademarks. When filled with ice, water condenses on the outside of the bowl to give it a distinct sheen. In 1914, this design was purchased by the Louvre museum in Paris for their permanent collection and is commonly referred to as the “Louvre” bowl.
