Georg Jensen: A Tradition of Splendid Silver
'For each of us beauty has its own meaning, its individual manifestation. For this reason, we will differ in our definitions, and each of us will choose to possess those things which most satisfy our own longings. But we all agree that beauty, whatever form it may take, will possess perfection as that attribute which will distinguish it from all lesser objects. Thus, though you will see many forms of art exhibited at Georg Jensen Inc., you will discover that in every form a high standard of perfection is the first determinant of our policy.'
Frederik Lunning, President of Georg Jensen, New York, 1944
