BLOSSOM hot water kettle 2B
Item Number3529350The Blossom hot water kettle with mammoth handles is a very unique piece. The Blossom design and details on the kettle demonstrates Georg Jensen’s inspiration by nature. As typical for Georg Jensen’s pieces the decoration was applied to the top and the bottom of the pieces. The surface of the hot water kettle is covered with delicate hammer marks – a distinct Georg Jensen feature - which softens the reflected light to create the greyish shimmer he associated with moonlight. The cutlery silversmith forms the Magnolia flowers for the lids and hands it over to the silversmith who will solder it on. The flower bud was inspired by Japanese art, which uses the magnolia bud as a symbol of the month of May.
