Grape Coaster 394
Item Number 3522956As most of Georg Jensen's designs this wine coaster 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. The chaser makes the pattern on the bottle tray. When the chaser receives the base it is totally smooth so the first step is to draw the pattern to be chased with a pencil. This is necessary to ensure that the convex shaped squares have the exact same size and that the delicate grape and floral pattern is laid out correctly. Then the patient work with the hammer and the punches starts. The surface of the wine coaster has the characteristic hammer marks, which Georg Jensen used to softens the reflection of light in the silver to create the greyish shimmer he associated with moonlight.
