About

Charming and very heavy candle holder pair by Georg Jensen. 925 sterling silver. Such heavy candlesticks by Georg Jensen are rare and coveted collectibles. Original condition. Unrestored. Total weight 2326 grams. (5,12795 Pounds lb) This chandelier is an excellent example of Georg Jensen's good sense for a harmonious balance of all parts of a design, which together form an integrated whole. The rich ornamentation is focused on the body of the chandelier and forms an interesting contrast to the airy, energetic expression of the arms. In this way, the design receives an elegant, timeless freshness. The floral decoration naturally develops from the forms. The softly curled, chiseled arms are reminiscent of flower stems and make poetic, playful patterns, while the top of the middle part is decorated by stylized grapes. The candelabra 324 was designed at the end of the First World War (1914-1918), at a time when unprecedented amounts of money were in circulation, trade flourished, and the silversmith reached record sales. In those years Georg Jensen created silver objects that were more richly decorated than usual for him. This is already evident in the two-arm candlestick 324, but can be seen even more in the five-armed candlestick 383 of 1920. The candlestick 324 is also referred to as a poppy candlestick because the body is in the shape of poppy capsules. These capsules are each soldered together in two halves, with the carver applying the various patterns and the hammered surface before the silversmith connects everything together. Silversmith had to be extra careful and make sure that everything was measured and put together in the right angle. Even the smallest inaccuracy would make the candlestick look crooked and let the candles drip.

About the Manufacturer

Georg Jensen

For over a century, Georg Jensen has produced some of the finest objects in Scandinavian modern design, including silver tableware, serving pieces, home decor, jewelry and more, frequently partnering with leading artisans to expand its offerings and respond to shifting tastes. Known for minimal aesthetics that reference nature, the craftsmanship of this legendary Danish silverware firm has regularly married function with thoughtful and beautiful design.

Founder Georg Jensen (1866–1935) was born in the small town of Radvaad, Denmark, and began his training as a goldsmith at 14. After studying sculpture and then training with master silversmith Mogens Ballin, he established his own silver business in Copenhagen in 1904. By 1918, the company was successful enough to open a shop in Paris.

Jensen’s firm produced an incredibly vast range of silver objects, from serving dishes and barware to centerpieces and chandeliers. For his early work, which bore ornate floral details and other organic forms of Art Nouveau, Jensen looked to the splendors of the natural world. The 1905 Blossom teapot, for instance, was topped with a magnolia bud and deftly balanced on toad feet, while some of Jensen’s best-known flatware patterns included Lily of the Valley, introduced in 1913, and Acorn, which debuted in 1915.

Collaboration with outside designers, long before such partnerships were common in design, would lead to some of the company’s most popular and enduring work of the mid-century. Sigvard Bernadotte and Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe created collections, as did Henning Koppel, whose curvy 1952 Pregnant Duck pitcher is a Georg Jensen classic.

After evolving and expanding throughout the 20th century, Georg Jensen was acquired by Investcorp in 2012. Today, the company is a global luxury brand with more than 1,000 stores around the world. It continues to produce seductive new pieces, such as a tea service made with Marc Newson in 2015, as well as timeless heritage designs, including the relaunch in 2019 of the 1018 solid sterling-silver Tureen 270. In 2020, the firm introduced the Jardinière 1505. Sculptural and richly decorative, the never-before-realized showpiece is hand-hammered from sheets of the finest sterling silver and is based on a 1915 sketch from Jensen’s archives.
