Acanthus by Georg Jensen Danish Sterling Silver Flatware Set for Eight Service 68 Pieces
This is a stunning sterling silver Acanthus flatware set by Georg Jensen.
The Acanthus pattern, designed by the painter Johan Rohde, was released in 1917. George Jensen was inspired by nature and the ideals of the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts movement. In 1907, he began collaborating with Johan Rohde in translating the forms of post-Impressionist painting into the medium of silver; the acanthus pattern we see here is his design with the fine Danish silver-work of Jensen. With its lovely details the Acanthus pattern is emblematic of the Art Nouveau style of the era.
This set serves eight and contains 68 pieces in total. All utensils are stamped with the post-1945 mark, as well as “STERLING DENMARK” and “GEORG JENSEN". The set contains:
Eight dinner knives, with stainless steel blade, 9 1/2”.
Eight butter knives, 7”.
Eight soup spoons, 7 1/2”.
