GEORG JENSEN STERLING SILVER SUGAR BOWL BONBONNIERE, 1950


⭕ A wonderful example of Jensen silver designed by Georg Jensen (c. 1919), this stunning item is referred to as a covered sugar bowl or bonbonnière. The bulbous, oval body has a slightly flared edge with stepped top and detachable lid. So accomplished is this particular design that the organic elements seem to grow out of the silver. - On the cover, clusters of leaves and blooming floral buds emerge from a foliate chased background. The loop handles fall over the sides with blossoming leaves sprouting tendrils. Four scrolling squat feet seem to grow from the body with hand-chased foliate design. Fine hammering overall compliments the bold, decorative elements and make the body sparkle.

Measuring 7 inches across the handles by 4.25 inches deep and 4.5 inches high, this sugar bowl/It bears the 1945-77 Jensen mark and came from a Midwest collection where the collectors were buying their Jensen silver in Denmark during the 1950s. It is also stamped DENMARK, STERLING, with the model number 262 and also has import marks for Sweden.
