Renowned Danish silversmith Georg Jensen was born in 1866. His training in metalsmithing and his education in the Fine Arts enabled him to develop a successful career based in beautiful jewelry and silver design. His signature Art Nouveau style grew increasingly popular and Jensen became a world renowned artist. Although Jensen died in 1935, his pieces are still being created today using the same craftsmanship as when he was alive.
This beautiful vintage set (ca1940s) is a wonderful example of Georg Jensen's craft! Crafted in sterling silver, the set features a tranquil dove motif designed by Kristian Moehl-Hansen for Georg Jensen (originally in 1904) throughout every piece along with beautiful bezel-set coral cabochons of varying sizes. This set includes one bracelet, one necklace, and one pair of clip-on earrings. The simple curvilinear shapes and nature-inspired motif exemplify Jensen's unique Mid-Century Modernist style. Stamped on the back of each piece's setting are several markings, including "925 S DENMARK" along with the Georg Jensen signature hallmark used in the mid 1940s, and the serial number for each piece. This set does come with a Georg Jensen gift box. This wonderful set by a beloved silversmith would make a lovely addition to any vintage jewelry collection!
