152 Piece Acorn Pattern Sterlimng Silver Canteen of Cutlery, Post 1945 by Georg Jensen

The Service

This extensive 152 piece canteen of silver flatware and cutlery is in one of the most sought after patterns of the 20th century, Jensen’s Acorn Pattern. The service provides for twelve pieces for 12 place settings with an array of serving items and optional extras.

 

All the pieces, except 6 table knives, were made by Georg Jensen and bear the post 1945 Jensen workshop Sterling mark. The knives have 1933 to 1945 marks and are distinguished from the later six by a serrated cutting edge and also some very minor pitting to several.

 

The service includes 12 of each of all the standard pieces for a formal table setting for a five course meal with the bonus of both tea and coffee spoons.

 

There are four types of knife. The fish knives are the superior one piece type with flat silver blades. The table knives consist of six with standard stainless steel blade and six with a serrated cutting edge. The dessert knives consist of eight standard-sized and four with blades that are 1.5cm longer. The photo showing four knives shows the two types of table knife and the two sizes of dessert knife. There is the bonus of 12 smaller knives which can be used as side knives or as tea knives for a cheese course.

 

The four types of fork include the standard table, dessert, 3-pronged fish and the extra addition of a dozen pastry or cake forks with a wider cutting tine. The four spoons types are all oval bowled and from largest to smallest are for soup, dessert, tea and coffee.

 

The serving items include two large and heavy serving spoons with generous bowls and an array of other pieces with stainless steel blades or bowls.

 

Acorn Pattern

This pattern was designed by Johan Rohde in 1917 and is also known by its Danish name of Konge. It has a stylized acorn motif surmounting two scrolls to the terminal of the ridged stem. It has a lovely elegant feel that has inevitably lead to it become one of the most popular and highly sought after of all Jensen flatware patterns.

 

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 and 30’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.
