Georg Jensen Vintage Silver
The Georg Jensen Company introduced thirty-two silverware patterns between 1906 and 1981. Twenty-seven of these have names and numbers, and five are known by a number only. Beginning in the 1920s, sales of flatware became an important part of the George Jensen Company's sales strategy. Customers could buy pieces to fill out their flatware set for years and expand their collection with new and less essential pieces. A whole flatware set may be very expensive, but individual pieces are quite affordable, so a large service can be built over many years.
