Georg Jensen dominates Jasper52 May 30 silver auction

Few names loom as large in the realm of silver as Danish designer and entrepreneur Georg Jensen. He was innovative in both silversmithing and marketing, and possessed reserves of generosity–a rare resource among high achievers–that freed him to invite other artists and artisans to create pieces and lines for him under their own names. Those strategies helped his company survive to the present when virtually every other silver firm went defunct. On May 30, beginning at 5 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will present an auction of Silver Cutlery, Hollowware & Gifts, characterized by extremely strong pieces by Jensen.

Large and early Georg Jensen silver fish platter and mazarine, estimated at $23,000-$28,000
