Georg Jensen Sterling & Chrysoprase Bracelet
Danish silversmith Georg Jensen was a renowned Danish silversmith born in the 1866. His training in metalsmithing and his education of the fine arts allowed him to develop a successful career of beautiful jewelry and silver design. His signature Art Nouveau style grew increasingly popular and Jensen became a world renowned artist. Jensen died in 1935 however his pieces are still being created today with the same craftsmanship as when he was alive.
This sterling silver bracelet is a great example of Georg Jensen's craft. From approximately circa 1910-1925, it is comprised of 6 sterling silver links with a single oval-shaped cabochon chrysoprase stone set in the center of each. The chrysoprase stones are a vibrant green color and are surrounded by a simple silver beaded border. Each link is connected by 2 small oval shaped rings. On the back of the clasp are several markings: the signature "GJ" hallmark which was used during the 1910-1925 time, "IMPORT DE DENMARK", "830" and the number "25". This fabulous piece would make a great addition to any Jensen collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measure approximately 7 1/4 " long and 7/8" wide. Each individual link measures slightly less than 3/4".
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the chrysoprase stones and besides normal surface wear, there is no significant damage to the silver. The clasp is secure and in good working condition.
