Trained as goldsmith and sculptor Georg Arthur Jensen (1866-1935) opened his own workshop in Copenhagen in 1904, primarily making jewellery. From 1907 onwards, Jensen also started producing silver tableware designed by architect and painter Johan Rohde and Harald Nielsen. Such was the demand for this silver that Jensen in 1916 established Jensen Silversmiths in Copenhagen. The influenceof this factory on European and North American silversmiths was considerable. By the 1930s retail outlets had been opened in London, New York and Paris, amongst others. Georg Jensen made silver objects in a decorated, floral style, as well as purer, more geometric pieces.
