Georg Jensen Sterling Silver Pitcher 653

An important Georg Jensen sterling silver pitcher designed #653 by Johan Rohde in 1931. This design showcases Rohde’s foray into the art deco movement, a departure from the elaborate motifs of art nouveau. The pitcher’s unique bean-shaped form features a turned lipped spout and an ebony handle adorned with captivating art deco details. Notably, this design represents a pivotal moment in Rohde’s career, marking his transition into the art deco era—a period Georg Jensen initially hesitated to embrace.

An aesthetically pleasing pitcher, it boasts a stunning shape that nearly closes at the top, presenting a challenging feat for any skilled silversmith. The organic design reflects Rohde’s affinity for scroll and column shapes, evident in the meticulously crafted handle mounting.

Beyond its visual allure, this pitcher holds historical significance as one of the earliest productions within a limited series. The scarcity of these pieces can be attributed to the inherent challenges in fabrication, adding to its value and rarity.
