Continental Pattern

Also known in Danish as Antik, this elegant flatware pattern was one of the first to be designed by Georg Jensen and is an early example of the Art Deco movement.

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, 30’s & 40’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.
