Johan Rohde for Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Acorn Pattern Fish Serving Set

$3,000per set

About

This pre-1945 fish serving set was designed by Johan Rohde for Georg Jensen of Denmark. The sterling silver pieces have been made in Rohde's popular Acorn pattern which was introduced in 1915. The fish set consists of two pieces including a serving spoon and four tine serving fork, both of which have perforations to allow for draining. The finials and stems incorporate the decorative elements common to the Acorn pattern as well as featuring the bodies of two fish crossed over each other where the stems meet the flat portions of the serving pieces. The spoon and fork both bear the Jensen hallmark used from 1933 to 1944 and are stamped Sterling and Denmark. The fork measures 9.375" in length, 2.5" wide and is 1.375" from the display surface to the top edge of the tines. The spoon's measurements are noted elsewhere in this description. This unusual fish set displays beautifully and would be great addition to a collection of pre-1945 Jensen Acorn motif sterling, or work equally well as stand alone serving pieces. A lovely example Jensen silver.

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.Find an exquisite collection of Georg Jensen serveware, ceramics, silver and glass today on 1stDibs.
