Excellent original condition with no monograms and beautiful patina.DesignerHarald Nielsen (1892 - 1977) is an important figure in the history of the Georg Jensen Silversmithy. He was not only a masterful designer he helped facilitate a smooth transition from the first generation of the firms designers, notably Georg Jensen and Johan Rohde - to those who followed, and played a key role in ensuring the continuity of high standards of craftsmanship and design creativity. Nielsen was the younger brother of Georg Jensen's third wife, Johanne Nielsen. Although he aspired to be a painter, in 1909 he became an apprentice in Jensen's small workshop, where he was initially employed as a chaser. Later, he became one of the Silversmithys designers and the director of the smithy's school for apprentices, the latter a position he held for seventeen years. He served as the Silversmithys director from 1954 through 1958, and as its artistic director from 1958 to 1962. (Excerpt from Georg Jensen Holloware, The Silver Fund Collection.)
