Georg Jensen Silver at Grays

Georg Jensen was a Danish silversmith and best known for his quality craftsmanship and timeless designs. He started his career as a goldsmith at the age of 14. After graduating at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and several apprenticeships, he opened his first workshop in Copenhagen in 1904. As his creations caught the eye of the public his success was assured. Before the end of the 1920s, Jensen opened shops in New York, London, Paris, Stockholm, and Berlin. He died in 1935 but his high standards in quality and design held firm and today Georg Jensen is one of the most successful luxury design brands in the world.
