Georg Jensen

Item Number 3520825

Georg Jensens oval Bonbonniere from 1905 takes a number of figures from nature and combines them into a new organic form. Low and stout with toads feet and a magnolia blossom on top - this merging of elements was typical of Georg Jensens work with flora and fauna. He removed the elements he found fascinating from their natural context and incorporated them in his designs making them come alive in an imaginative and whimsical way. The flower bud was inspired by Japanese art which uses the magnolia bud as a symbol of the month of May. The toad is also known in Japan and is a symbol of luck. As typical for Georg Jensens pieces the decoration was applied to the top and the bottom of the pieces. The surface of the Bonbonniere is covered with delicate hammer marks a distinct Georg Jensen style - which softens the reflected light to create the greyish shimmer he associated with moonlight.
