Overview

Georg Jensen : A Tradition of Splendid Silver by Janet Drucker

A sterling new study of the exquisite designs of Danish silversmith Georg Jensen (1866Ð1935) and company. 737 photographs illustrate much of the stunning jewelry, hollowware, and flatware designed and produced from 1904 to the present. One of the most talented, original, and influential silversmiths of the twentieth century, Jensen's life and the company he founded are thoroughly researched, exploring his place within the late nineteenth century arts scene, his training as a sculptor and silversmith, the establishment of his own workshop, and its expansion into an international company. The contributions of many gifted designers who worked for the company are discussed in detail and interpretation of the marks used on Jensen silver is provided, making this book of particular interest to owners of Jensen silver, artists, silversmiths, designers, curators, and art dealers.
