Georg Jensen: 20th Century Designs - Preface by Janet Drucker & William Drucker. This 250-page book is a reprint of jewelry and hollowware catalog pages from Georg Jensen. It brings eagerly sought information together in one volume. Hard to find, the original catalogs have been widely dispersed and costly, yet they provide primary information to enable identification of thousands of pieces found on the vintage market today. These original catalogs can cost $100's of dollars. There are over 1,500 different pieces illustrated. The jewelry section includes women's and men's gold and silver designs, especially those made during the 1940's, which have been difficult to identify previously. The enormous section on hollowware here especially displays hundreds of designs from the late 1950's and early 1960's. During this period, Georg Jensen designers expanded their range of tea sets, pitchers, bowls, etc. to include very popular modern forms based on Scandinavian design principles. These designs have remained among the most cherished Georg Jensen forms up to the present. The catalog descriptions include the product numbers, original retail prices from the mid-century era, measurements, and designers. A special information list identifies forty-three Georg Jensen designs in Museum collections around the world. This easy to use volume will become a standard reference for all the collectors, dealers, auction houses, and individuals who own and are inspired by Georg Jensen designs. For the past 20 years, the author, Janet Drucker, has answered questions regarding the many Georg Jensen designs, their numbers, sizes, variations, and designers. She and her son, William Drucker, are leading dealers in Georg Jensen Silver jewelry, flatware, and hollowware and other antiques. Janet is the author of the primary reference work in this field "Georg Jensen: A Tradition of Splendid Silver, which is in its second edition.
