  • Notes: Georg Jensen (1866-1935) was born in the countryside outside of Copenhagen, Denmark. At age 14, Jensen began his training in goldsmithing and apprenticed with Guldsmed Andersen. Later, he incorporated his studies in sculpture into his practice and trained under a master silversmith, Mogens Ballin. By 1918, Jensen opened his own silversmithing business in Paris.

    Over time, Jensen's firm became known for producing a wide array of silver objects inspired by the Art Nouveau movement and Scandinavian designers. His signature simple and sleek style is highly sought after today.
  • Condition: Each overall good condition with tarnishing and light scratches commensurate with age.
