181 Piece Acorn Pattern Sterling Silver Canteen of Cutlery, Post 1945 by Georg Jensen


The Service

This extensive 181 piece canteen of silver flatware and cutlery is in one of the most sought after patterns of the 20th century, Georg Jensen’s Acorn Pattern. The service provides for up to 13 pieces for 12 place settings with a large array of serving items and optional extras.


The service includes 12 of each of all the standard pieces for a formal table setting for a five course meal with the bonus of both tea and coffee spoons. All the pieces were made by Georg Jensen and most bear the post 1945 Jensen workshop Sterling mark.


There are four types of knife. The fish knives are the superior one piece type with flat silver blades. The others come in three sizes and are fitted with stainless steel blades to allow cutting. The starter and dessert knife could be interchanged as appropriate and used as side knives, cheese knives, starter knives or for dessert as required.


The four types of fork include the standard table, dessert, 3-pronged fish and the extra addition of a dozen pastry or cake forks with a wider cutting tine. The five spoons types are mostly oval bowled, (except the round bowled bouillon/fruit spoon), and from largest to smallest are for soup, dessert, tea and coffee.


The serving items include a useful set of 6 table spoons, a pair of salad servers, and a large and heavy serving spoon with generous sized bowl. Together with sauce and cream ladles, an assortment of forks, butter knives and smaller spoons, there is something for every occasion.


Acorn Pattern

This pattern was designed by Johan Rohde in 1917 and 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

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.
