GEORG JENSEN STERLING SILVER CACTUS PIE SERVER

I am a Trading Assistant - I can sell items for you!
This auction is for a genuine Georg Jensen Denmark Sterling Silver Pie Server from the Cactus Line. Measures about 10.25 inches in length. This is solid sterling silver, stamped with the Georg Jensen logo (in the dotted oval circle) with STERLING DENMARK.

This is in very good condition - just need a bit of polishing.

Designed in 1930 by Gundorph Albertus, the Cactus cutlery pattern has elements of art-deco's penchant for striking decoration and the simplicity of form evident in the emerging functionalist style. The form of the Cactus pattern is simple, yet defined and the stylised detail of the cactus clearly illustrate Gundorph Albertus' meticulous sensitivity to the charcter of silver.

Gundorph Albertus (1887 - 1970) was educated as a sculptor and undeniably had a deep understanding of silver. In his long career at the Jensen smith (1916-1954) and in collaboration with fellow designer, Harald Nielsen, Albertus defined a new era of silverware design while upholding Georg Jensen's vision and artistic ideals.
