Acorn is probably the best known Jensen flatware pattern and was designed by Johan Rohde in 1916. It is also known by its Danish name of Konge. It has a stylized acorn motif surmounting two scrolls to the terminal of the ridged stem. It has a lovely elegant feel that has inevitably lead to it become one of the most popular and highly sought after of all Jensen flatware patterns.
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 and 30’s and some of his most important patterns were designed during this period. Many of the Jensen flatware patterns have endured the test of time and remain highly popular today.
