GEORG JENSEN Sterling + Chrysoprase Floral Motif Bracelet No. 3
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 sterling silver bracelet is a fabulous example of Georg Jensen's fine craft. From circa 1933-1944, this classic Jensen piece is comprised of 8 sterling silver links each set with a vibrant green cabochon chrysoprase. Four sterling leaf motif links are bezel set with an oval-shaped chrysoprase while the remaining four floral links adorn a round cabochon stone. Each link is connected by two simple, oval-shaped connectors, and a push clasp secures the bracelet within a floral link. The underside of the latched floral link reads "925.S STERLING DENMARK 3" and is twice stamped with the signature "GJ" hallmark that was used during the 1933-1944 era. A figure-8 latch further secures the bracelet. This fabulous piece would make a great addition to any Jensen collection!
Measurements: The bracelet measure approximately 7.25" long and 5/8" at its widest. Each leaf link measures about 7/8" long while the floral links measure 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 and safety are secure and in good working condition.
