Pitcher 1010

The spare, geometrical silver design of Pitcher 1010 reflects the functionalistic idiom of Bernadotte’s style. He replaced Georg Jensen’s typical hammered finish with a clean and smooth surface. Despite his devotion to functionalism, his designs also embody a sort of personal sensitivity that gives them appealing warmth.

Pitcher 1010 is also called the ice-water jug due to the functional sieve that works as a strainer hindering ice cubes or lemon pieces from slipping out. The content in the pitcher stays ice cold all day.

Pitcher 1010 with it’s timeless design and ebony handle is one of Bernadotte's own personal favourites. The Pitcher became a design icon in 1980 when Sarah Booth Conroy wrote - ‘The Sterling Silver ice-water jug, designed by Bernadotte in 1952, is fit not only for a king but a god’ - in the Washington Post.

Designer: Sigvard Bernadotte

Prince Sigvard Bernadotte (1907-2002) was trained at the Kungliga Konstakademien in Stockholm in 1929. The following year he saw the Stockholm exhibition of Gunnar Asplund, which marked the breakthrough of functionalism. This influenced Bernadotte’s own style and he incorporated the ideals of functional elegance into his design thenceforth. Shortly afterwards, Prince Sigvard Bernadotte and Georg Jensen began a long and fruitful cooperation, in which the new functionalism was at the centre of a more modern interpretation of the work of silver.

The prince’s long affiliation with Georg Jensen represents another chapter in the rich history of Scandinavian design. His Bernadotte collection has been and continues to be a favourite for generations.
