Georg Jensen was a Danish silversmith who opened his first silver workshop in 1904 in Copenhagen. He was to become the most renown maker of silverware in the World with shops in London, Paris, New York, Berlin and Stockholm. His company embraced the Art Deco movement of the 1920’s, 30’s & 40’s and were a major player in developing the Scandinavian modernistic styles of the 50’s and 60’s. Many of the Jensen flatware patterns have endured the test of time and remain highly popular today.
