“Magnolia / Blossom” pattern silver by Georg Jensen
The idea for the “Blossom” pattern (also known as “Magnolia” in Scandinavia and Europe) was first created by Georg Jensen in a silver work in 1905. In that year, he created the legendary teapot #2C in this pattern (of which we are currently also offering an early example, see here), whose knob of the lid featured the magnolia blossom. Other silverware such as bowls, trays and other silverware followed. Years later (in 1919) Georg Jensen followed up this idea and designed the cutlery of the same name, which became Georg Jensen’s classic among silver cutleries. Due to its handcrafted manufacture, it is still the most expensive silver cutlery by Georg Jensen, which is why each piece of “Magnolia / Blossom” cutlery is unique. To this day, the cutlery is only produced in silver and is also the only one that is still produced in Copenhagen, while the production of hollowware has been outsourced to workshops in Thailand. The shakers offered here are still of the old Copenhagen quality and are in excellent condition – including the hammered surface. Even today, more than a hundred years after its first release, cutlery and silverware of the “Magnolia / Blossom” pattern is among the most popular silverware by Georg Jensen. The new price at Georg Jensen for one shaker is currently EUR 1.675 per piece – albeit Made in Thailand. Our offer refers to the pair shown.
