134 Piece Acorn Pattern Canteen, Post 1945 by Georg Jensen

 

The Service

 

This extensive 134 piece canteen of silver flatware and cutlery is in one of the most sought after patterns of the 20th century, Georg Jensen’s Acorn Pattern. The service provides for up to 11 pieces for 12 place settings with some serving items and optional extras.

 

All the pieces were made by Georg Jensen and most bear English hallmarks for the 1925-1930 period in addition to the Jensen workshop Sterling mark. Some of the pieces have been added later and are stamped with post-1945 Jensen marks.

 

The service includes 12 of each of all the standard pieces for a formal table setting for a five course meal or give flexibility for a three course meal – fish or soup as starter, main course and options for dessert course with either standard knife, fork and spoon or using the fruit knife and fork (knife with silver blade), plus tea/coffee spoons for after-dinner. The dessert-sized knife with stainless steel blade could also be used as a side knife or cheese course knife. Lots of options!

 

There are two serving items included (large serving spoon and sauce ladle), with more available on request.

 

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.
