London 1922 GEORG JENSEN, very famous maker solid silver Continental pattern spoon.
London 1922 antique Georg Jensen, famous maker solid silver Continental pattern spoon, with full sets of both Danish and English hallmarks for sterling or solid silver. Danish Three Tower marks for 1922, Georg Jensen mark, 925S mark, assay marks for Christian F. Heise, and full London import marks for 1922, are on reverse, as well as George Stockwell's mark, as the London import agent.
Jensen was one of the most talented original and influential designers of the 20th century, and today his silver is most highly sought after. Although his workshop continued to produce pieces after his death, his older originally produced pieces, from the time when he was still alive, are most valued, such as this one.
This is a very popular silver spoon by a famous and collectable maker, this example being more valuable as it was produced under his tutelage while Georg Jensen was still alive.
Continental pattern was inspired by old Nordic wooden cutlery, and is produced with a lightly hammered finish. It is the first major cutlery pattern to come out of Jensen's workshop in 1906.
The tear dropped shaped bowl makes this spoon useful as a childs spoon, or for serving soups or sauces.
Size-5.5 inches long by 1 3/8 inches wide.
Weight-30 grams.
In very good condition.
