Gorgeous sterling silver stuns in this rich pattern that features a natural theme reminiscent of old world grace. A Classic design yet with an understated touch, this pattern focuses on simple yet refined elegance. The "Acorn" or "Konge" pattern of sterling silver flatware was designed by Johan Rohde in 1915 for Georg Jensen. At one time there were 220 individual pieces in this pattern, but today there is closer to 90 pieces, and remains one of the most iconic Jensen patterns today. Johan Rohde is known for his innovative and unique style. While his patterns are elegant and Classic, they are a unique version of Art Nouveau and still fit in well with today's world. Johan Rohde became one of the first people to work with Georg Jensen after Rohde had Jensen commission some pieces for his personal collection in 1906. Georg Jensen was impressed so much by his style that he invited him to design a collection. In his favorable Acorn pattern, you can see Rohde used decoration to emphasize form as well as Hammer marks and oxidization. His work is both sensitive and understated. Satisfaction guaranteed!

About the Maker

Georg Jensen

For over a century, Georg Jensen has produced some of the finest objects in Scandinavian modern design, including silver tableware, serving pieces, home decor, jewelry and more, frequently partnering with leading artisans to expand its offerings and respond to shifting tastes. Known for minimal aesthetics that reference nature, the craftsmanship of this legendary Danish silverware firm has regularly married function with thoughtful and beautiful design.Founder Georg Jensen (1866–1935) was born in the small town of Radvaad, Denmark, and began his training as a goldsmith at 14. After studying sculpture and then training with master silversmith Mogens Ballin, he established his own silver business in Copenhagen in 1904. By 1918, the company was successful enough to open a shop in Paris.Jensen’s firm produced an incredibly vast range of silver objects, from serving dishes and barware to centerpieces and chandeliers. For his early work, which bore ornate floral details and other organic forms of Art Nouveau, Jensen looked to the splendors of the natural world. The 1905 Blossom teapot, for instance, was topped with a magnolia bud and deftly balanced on toad feet, while some of Jensen’s best-known flatware patterns included Lily of the Valley, introduced in 1913, and Acorn, which debuted in 1915.Collaboration with outside designers, long before such partnerships were common in design, would lead to some of the company’s most popular and enduring work of the mid-century. Sigvard Bernadotte and Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe created collections, as did Henning Koppel, whose curvy 1952 Pregnant Duck pitcher is a Georg Jensen classic.After evolving and expanding throughout the 20th century, Georg Jensen was acquired by Investcorp in 2012. Today, the company is a global luxury brand with more than 1,000 stores around the world. It continues to produce seductive new pieces, such as a tea service made with Marc Newson in 2015, as well as timeless heritage designs, including the relaunch in 2019 of the 1018 solid sterling-silver Tureen 270. In 2020, the firm introduced the Jardinière 1505. Sculptural and richly decorative, the never-before-realized showpiece is hand-hammered from sheets of the finest sterling silver and is based on a 1915 sketch from Jensen’s archives.Find an exquisite collection of Georg Jensen serveware, ceramics, silver and glass today on 1stDibs.
