Designed in 1947 by
Harold Nielsen, the Old Danish cutlery pattern is a symbolic representation of
Denmark's occupation during WWII. The accentuated, clean lines of the double
fluted pattern and the balanced distribution of weight symbolize the spirit and
proud resistance of the Danish nation. The Old Danish pattern has a long
association with Danish royalty; King Christian X, who never fled his kingdom
during occupation, used the cutlery at state banquets and more recently it was
given as a wedding gift to Their Highnesses The Crown Prince and The Crown
Princess of Denmark in 2004.
incredible talent originated some of the most successful designs from the Georg
Jensen company during the 1920's and 30's. He is a story of Georg Jensen
legacy, as he started at an early age and grew into an expert craftsman with
the company. As he grew his work, he left the Art Nouveau style and developed
his own style that incorporated the Art Deco design but was his own
interpretation of it. After Georg Jensen passed, he made it his life's work to
carry on the work and spent more than a half century at Georg Jensen.
