Hans Hansen (1884-1940) started his own silversmithy in the 1920s in a reaction against the mechanised production of silver flatware. His son, Gustav Hansen, took over the silversmithy when his Father, Hans Hansen died in 1940, aged only 56.

The company was taken over by the Royal Scandinavia Group in 1991 and thus incorporated into Georg Jensen.

Arno Malinowski worked at the Georg Jensen Silversmithy from 1936-1944 and again from 1949-65. He gained his artistic inspiration from Japanese art for many of his designs and this can be clearly seen. The “Lamb with Ivy” is one of his more unusual designs and has proved very popular. His jewellery design is very distinctive and he often included stylized birds and animals. Other popular brooches by Arno Malinowski are 'Kneeling Deer', 'Two Butterflies' 'Sheep with Enamelled Hearts' were just a few of the many he produced. His work was shown in numerous exhibitions in Denmark and abroad.

Note: Henning Koppel was hired by the Georg Jensen company in 1949.  By the early 1940's Nordic jewellers had embraced 'Biomorphism' Biomorphist art focuses on the power of natural life and uses organic shapes, with shapeless and vaguely spherical hints of the forms of biology. Biomorphism has connections with Surrealism and Art Nouveau .  Henning Koppel and the term 'Biomorphism' have come to be virually synonymous.  His advant guard designs caused much intra-company controversy but now examples of Henning's work have become icons of mid 20th century jewellery design

DETAIL

Floral Brooch designed by Georg Jensen with blue Lapis.
Design No: 66
Size: 2 cm (.75”)  x 3 cm (1.2”)
Date of Manufacture: 1904-1908
Price: £950
  Stock Ref. No. 948
 
This iconic Georg Jensen Brooch was made between 1904 and 1908.  Georg Jensen set up his first workshop in Copenhagen in 1904, so this brooch was not only designed by Georg Jensen but will most probably have actually been made by him.  At the beginning of his workshop, he only had one 14 year old apprentice, Henry Pilstrup, to help him with his work.
 
This is an exciting piece of Georg Jensen memorabilia as he will probably have actually handled this piece of jewellery.  Georg Jensen’s magic in his design and the beautiful deep blue of the lapis, bring the brooch to life.  A ‘must have’ for any devotee of Georg Jensen’s work.

Arno Malinowski designed for Georg Jensen in the 1940’s.  His designs are proving to be as popular today as they were then.  He had to work in very difficult conditions during the wartime period, when silver was in short supply in Denmark, due to the severe restrictions of silver imports.  However, the firm survived and carried on despite everything, even though the silversmiths had to sometimes wait to be paid for their work.  Luckily, Georg Jensen had many friends and admirers, who always came to the rescue when the company got into difficulties.  These brooches are iconic pieces of history which tell the Georg Jensen story.

Enquiries

Note: A large number of Jensen's jewellery designs have remained popular through the years since they were introduced and some are still in production today. Georg Jensen's attention to detail, such as the surface patina and clasp detail, are indications of his superior workmanship. This unusual brooch, design no. 153, is reminiscent of a peacock's flowing tail and head feathers. Many pieces could be ordered either in all silver or with different stones. Another version of this brooch with green cabouchons is on page 93 of Janet Drucker's book, ‘Georg Jensen: A Tradition of Splendid Silver' (Schiffer).
