Georg Jensen: born 1866 died 1935.
The Danish silversmith, sculptor and potter
studied at the Copenhagen Royal Academy
and had several ventures before opening his
own workshop in Copenhagen in 1904. He
began collaborating with painter and designer
Johan Rhode in 1907 and opened a shop in
Berlin (1908) and won International acclaim at
the 1910 Brussels Exhibition. More shops were
opened in Paris (1919) London (1920) Stockholm
(1930). A New York shop was opened by Jost
Lunning in 1920 and these all sold Jensen's high
quality mass-produced silver items and jewellery.
The New York Herald Tribune hailed him as the
"greatest silversmith of the last 300 years," Many
of the early designs are still in production today.
