About

The Louvre bowl – so called since the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at Musée du Louvre in Paris acquired this bowl for their permanent collection in 1914. The Louvre bowl is one of Georg Jensen’s most internationally famous pieces. It has been acquired by numerous museums around the world. It often features in advertisements in international journals, and in Denmark it was one of the motifs when the Danish Postal Authorities celebrated Danish design by using outstanding products as motifs on Danish stamps. As most of Georg Jensen’s designs the bowl is in the Art Nouveau style with the characteristic ornamental curved lines, organic structures, decorative ornaments of flora and fauna, and the use of honest and skilfully crafted materials. As characteristic of Georg Jensen, he shows restraint in the use of decoration which is limited to the middle section of leaves and beads leaving the rest of the bowl only decorated on the surface with hammer marks. The bowl is a brilliant conception; the manner in which it seems to hover weightlessly on a base of leaves is a lovely illustration of Georg Jensen’s ability to unite ‘fine art’ with ‘arts and crafts’. This fruit bowl is a whole little sculpture in itself, and demonstrates very clearly the effect of the hammered surface. The base of leaves and beads consists of 12 individual pieces with a total of 24 beads, which have been filed and polished to a perfectly smooth surface. Then the pieces have been soldered on to the base piece by piece. The challenge for the silversmith is that the 12 individual pieces must have the exact same height, a certain angle pointing away from the centre and at the same time they must have the perfect angle both horizontally and vertically as the rim and the bowl, which are soldered on afterwards, otherwise it will look lopsided.

View Profile
With a history that spans more than 100 years, the Georg Jensen brand represents quality craftsmanship and timeless aesthetic design, producing lifestyle products ranging from hollowware to watches, jewelry and home products. The philosophy of Georg Jensen himself was to create democratic designs possessing both functionality and beauty. His artisanal skill and artistic talent combined with his continuous ability to identify and support design talent was the foundation on which he built Georg Jensen in Copenhagen in 1904. Georg Jensen’s style embraced the Art Nouveau lines of the day but injected them with a distinctive vigor that continues to resonate today. Serene flowing forms are enriched by exquisitely sculpted ornamentation and his stylized bouquets of flowers and lush bunches of grapes reflect his sensual delight in nature. Our most important task is to leverage the ideas and principles of the master himself and translate these into the design of the present day.
