Rediscovered in Georg Jensen’s historic archives, the sketches of Tureen 270 represent a magnificent piece of artisanship that evokes the spirit of Art Nouveau design with its richly ornamented body featuring various botanical elements. As the whereabouts of the original tureen are unknown, Georg Jensen has chosen to recreate it to the greatest pleasure of collectors and silver aficionados all over the globe.
Manufactured from solid sterling silver, the tureen is handcrafted by skilled artisans at the Georg Jensen smithy in Copenhagen, Denmark. It takes the dedicated in-house team more than one year to create this masterpiece, bringing ancient craft techniques like hand-hammering, chiselling, oxidization into play.
The tureen features a total of 128 handmade castings recreated by hand of Georg Jensen silversmiths using archive photos, sketches and handmade molds from the beginning of the last century. The top of the lid is shaped like a bouquet of botanical elements including leaves, branches and flowers like magnolias, camellias, grape hyacinths, bellflowers, poppy pods and others.
The result is a stunning tureen featuring the characteristic Georg Jensen appearance with natural Art Nouveau elements and a striking deep glow.
