Georg Jensen Pyramid Tea Pot 600B Sterling Silver

Georg Jensen Pyramid Tea Pot 600B Sterling Silver – Shaped like an inverted pyramid, this coffee and tea set is very stringent in outline. The elements are based on geometric shapes: The ball, the triangle, the circle and straight lines. The lines are slightly curved, the profiles are accentuated, and the leaf underneath the jug’s handle accentuates the sweep of its arch.

The Pyramid design belongs to the Art Déco style, which was an international style of design and architecture. The form language of Art Déco favoured the basic structures of geometry like the cube, the triangle and the circle. The inspiration came from various free art movements like Dada’s machine aesthetic, Cubism’s geometrical approach and Surrealism’s interest in the subconscious. The spectacular discovery of the virtually intact tomb of King Tutankhamen in Egypt also influenced the Art Déco style with motifs from the Egyptian furniture and pyramids.

The handles are of ebony wood – a very hard type of wood. Each handle is made especially for the individual pot and creamer. The socket – the small piece where the handle is attached – is handmade and thus, may vary slightly from pot to pot – it may be only a 1/10 of a millimetre – but still each handle must be fitted specifically for the individual pot.

The shape of this service is a challenge to the silversmith. Silver is a very lively material when it is heated and especially when the top of the pot is soldered on it is vital that the top part is kept at an even temperature all the time. Otherwise, the silver will bend out of shape.

1892 – 1977 Harald Nielsen

Harald Nielsen had an outstanding talent as a draughtsman and was the originator of some of the most successful designs from Georg Jensen Silversmithy in the 1920s and 30s. He came to the Georg Jensen Silversmithy as an apprentice as early as 1909 and went on to become Georg Jensen’s trusted colleague. After Georg Jensen’s death in 1935, Harald Nielsen made it his life’s work to carry on the master’s work. In total, Nielsen spent more than half a century at Georg Jensen.

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.
