One Hundred and Seventy-Piece Set of Georg Jensen "Acorn" Sterling Silver Flatware, the pattern designed in 1915 by Johan Gudmann Rohde (1856-1935), Copenhagen, Denmark, including a dozen ten-piece place settings (seven pieces lacking) with an additional thirty-six place pieces and twenty-two serving pieces, no monograms, 180.72 total t. oz. (weighable silver). Detailed list of pieces available on request. Provenance: Estate of Carolyn G. Fay, Houston, Texas.


A good but well-used set with commensurate wear: scratches, scrapes, scuffs and dings, scattered dented tines, dulled finish, etc. The knives have damage to the end of the handle with the "acorn" flattened to some degree - lightly to severely - on all, with some splitting to the surrounding area of the hollow handle on all but three of the knives. Two of the demitasse spoons have some disposal damage on the edge of the bowls. All pieces marked "Sterling Denmark", and most with either the pelleted "Georg Jensen" mark or simply "Georg Jensen", indicating post-WWII manufacture; about a half dozen pieces with earlier Jensen marks. A large, well-used set with some rare pieces.
