A sterling new study of the exquisite designs of Danish
silversmith Georg Jensen (1866-1935) and company. Nearly one
thousand 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.
This book explores 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. Interpretation of the marks used on
Jensen silver is provided. This is a major revision of a
very important book, with over 200 new photos and new
information. It is an invaluable reference work for owners
of Jensen silver, artists, silversmiths, designers,
curators, and art dealers.
