Georg Jensen HK Small Pitcher in Stainless Steel Mirror Finish by Henning Koppel

$329per item

About

Launched in 2008 to coincide with master designer Henning Koppel’s 90th birthday, Masterpieces revisits Georg Jensen’s original silver hollowware. Of all the designers to work with Georg Jensen through the years, Henning Koppel was among the most highly regarded. His designs played an important role in influencing the signature look of Georg Jensen, particularly in the second half of the 20th century. The designer had trained as a sculptor before turning his attention to jewellery, hollowware and cutlery. Georg Jensen began as a silversmith; this collection is a modern interpretation of the legacy of excellent craftsmanship that dates from the very beginning. The pitcher is one of his most famous pieces and was first formed in 1952. It is spare but sensuous, with an elegantly extended handle and exaggerated lip. Containing 1,2 L, the pitcher makes it possible for everyone to use the elegant shape to serve water, or as a vase or beautiful wine carafe.

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.
