The Best Bet
On January 19, Christie’s will start a three-day auction of the largest private collection of Georg Jensen silver444 lots that span 100 years of the company’s history, from the founder’s own Arts and Crafts designs through the more well-known sleek, gleaming Modernist pieces done by Johan Rohde and Verner Panton. For the Jensen fan, it’s an opportunity to see (and maybe even own) many rare and one-of-a-kind pieces that have never been displayed. The serving spoon shown here is from Lot 81, a group of 36 silver ornamental serving pieces designed by Jensen and estimated to be worth between $10,000 and $15,000.
