Georg Jensen Pitcher 856A Sterling Silver

Georg Jensen Pitcher 856A Sterling Silver – Pitcher 856A is sometimes called ‘the melon pitcher’ because of its shape and similarity to the fruit. Although it was initially designed as part of a set together with Bowl 856 A+B for serving strawberries, the bowl displaying the strawberries beautifully and the pitcher being a perfect size for the cream.

The smooth top part of the pitcher is made out of a separate flat piece of silver which has been cut, bent and shaped to fit perfectly with the body before being soldered together. The handle is hollow and has been raised from another flat piece of silver. The handle has a line running down the middle which must be absolutely centred and straight – this can be a very time consuming adjustment for the silversmith. If it is not absolutely straight it will be disclosed immediately due to the lines on the body of the pitcher.

The chaser accentuates these very straight and fine lines with his/her hammer and punches moving them in a steady and even movement over the silver.

Sigvard Bernadotte

Prince Sigvard Bernadotte (1907-2002) was trained at the Kungliga Konstakademien in Stockholm in 1929. The prince’s long affiliation with Georg Jensen represents another chapter in the rich history of Scandinavian design. His Bernadotte collection has been and continues to be a favourite for generations.

With a history that spans more than 100 years, the Georg Jensen brand represents quality craftsmanship and timeless aesthetic design, producing lifestyle products ranging from hollowware to watches, jewellery and home products.

The philosophy of Georg Jensen himself was to create democratic designs possessing both functionality and beauty. His artisanal skill and artistic talent combined with his continuous ability to identify and support design talent was the foundation on which he built Georg Jensen in Copenhagen in 1904.

Georg Jensen’s style embraced the Art Nouveau lines of the day but injected them with a distinctive vigour that continues to resonate today. Serene flowing forms are enriched by exquisitely sculpted ornamentation and his stylised bouquets of flowers and lush bunches of grapes reflect his sensual delight in nature. Our most important task is to leverage the ideas and principles of the master himself and translate these into the design of the present day.
