Candelabrum 324

Georg Jensen had an eminent sense of balancing each part of a design harmoniously in relation to the others forming an integrated piece which this candelabrum is an excellent example of. The rich ornamentation is concentrated to the corpus of the candelabrum and contrasted with the airy and energetic feeling of the arms, giving the exuberant design an elegant timeless freshness. The floral decorations evolve naturally from the forms - so to speak. The soft, carving arms resemble flower stalks and form poetical and playful patterns and the stylised grapes complete the top of the central pieces of the candelabrum.
Candelabrum 324 is designed around the end of WW1 (1914-1918) - a very rich period where unprecedented abundance of money circulated, trade flourished everywhere and the Silversmithy had a record turnover. During these years Georg Jensen created more richly decorated silver pieces than normally seen from his side. The two-branch Candelabrum 324 has a touch of it – but it is even more distinct in the five-branch Candelabrum 383 from 1920.
Candelabrum 324 is called the ‘Poppy’ candelabrum – so called because the body is actually shaped as the capsule of the ‘Poppy’ flower.  The capsule is soldered together in two halves, the chaser will create the hammer marks and the different patterns on each piece before the silversmith puts it all together. The silversmith must be extremely careful and make sure that everything is measured up and in a perfect angle. The slightest obliquity will make the final piece look lopsided and the candles will drip!

Designer: Georg Jensen

In 1904 the Danish silversmith Georg Jensen founded his first modest silver smithy in the heart of Copenhagen. Thirty years later, he had made an international name for himself. When he died in 1935, the New York Herald Tribune saluted him as "the greatest silversmith of the last 300 years."

Georg Jensen was unique among silversmiths because he was as devoted to art as he was to craftsmanship. He had intimate knowledge of materials and brought this experience to bear on all of his designs.
