Lot 0007 Details

Description
The early floral pendant necklace. Maker mark 1915-1927, 830, Denmark, #15. 18", drops 2". 18.1 gs. Literature: Taylor, David A. Georg Jensen Jewelry (Published in Association with the Bard Graduate Centre for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture). New Haven: Yale University Press, 2005. Fig. 167, pg. 210.
Provenance: Collection of David Taylor.
Dr. David A. Taylor is a scholar of material culture and the author/editor of Georg Jensen Holloware: The Silver Fund Collection (2003) and Georg Jensen Jewelry (2005). These fundamental texts tell the story of Georg Jensen (1866-1935), the great Danish silversmith and designer; the company he founded in 1904; and the evolution of its holloware and jewelry designs.
Dr. Taylor’s study of Georg Jensen began with an interest in Jensen silver, especially the jewelry. He went on to research Jensen’s artistic training and his influences, consulting with scholars, collectors, antique dealers, and museum curators and assembling a substantial research library in the process. He also collected notable and representative examples of Jensen jewelry, a portion of which is included in this auction.
In 2005, Dr. Taylor served as the curator of the largest and most comprehensive exhibition ever mounted on the subject of Jensen jewelry, sponsored by the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture in New York City. More than 350 pieces surveyed the evolution of the company’s jewelry designs and illuminated the contributions of specific designers. Dr. Taylor edited and co-authored the lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogue and developed a comprehensive guide to company marks and construction details that remains an invaluable aid to anyone wishing to identify the ages and designers of Jensen jewelry.
Dr. Taylor has also written numerous scholarly books and articles on such disparate subjects as Dr. Christopher Dresser (1834-1904), the British designer and design theorist; traditional wooden boats of Newfoundland; methodologies for the documentation of maritime culture; and the cultural heritage of Italian-Americans.
For the past thirty years, Dr. Taylor has worked at the Library of Congress, in Washington, DC, where he holds the position of External Relations and Program Development Officer. For many years he was the Head of Research and Programs at the Library's American Folklife Center. He has also served as an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania and George Washington University.
