82 Piece Bernadotte Pattern Canteen, Post-1945 by Georg Jensen

 

The Service

This is a fabulous quality Sterling silver canteen of flatware and cutlery by one of the most important silversmith of the 20th century.

 

The service provides for ten pieces per 8 place settings with a pair of serving spoons. The components can be used in whichever way works best (for example the starter knife could be used as a butter knife in combination with a soup spoon); there are ample pieces for three courses and after dinner tea/coffee.

 

All the pieces were made by Georg Jensen and bear the post 1945 Jensen workshop Sterling mark.

 

Bernadotte Pattern

This stylish flatware pattern was designed for Georg Jensen in 1939 by Sigvaard Bernadotte and although Art Deco in date has a leaning towards the approaching changes in style in favour of a Modernistic taste. The pattern proved especially popular during the 1960’s.

 

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, 30’s & 40’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.
